Pupil Premium Plus (PP+)
Pupil Premium Plus (PP+) is a grant devolved to the Virtual School from the Department for Education. The Derby Virtual School headteacher has the responsibility and accountability for the Pupil Premium Plus Policy 2019-20 to benefit Derby City Looked After Children (LAC).
Targets set at the PEP that require support or intervention above and beyond what other children in the school receive can be funded through PP+.
In addition to the direct educational support that we offer, Derby Virtual School also supports wider achievements and learning.
If your LAC has music lessons through the Derby and Derbyshire Music Partnership in school, please ensure that they are accessing their assisted bursary which entitles them to discounted lessons and the loan of a free instrument.
Derby also fund projects that benefit groups of Looked After Children as well as support and training for the professionals that work with them.
Please refer to the Pupil Premium Plus Policy for guidance.
Early Years Pupil Premium Plus
Early Years Pupil Premium Plus (EYPP+) money will be allocated for children in care who are taking up the free early education entitlement for three and four year olds.
EYPP+ is £300 per year if taking up the full 570 hours of state-funded early education.
If you have a Derby City LAC that qualifies for EYPP+, please complete the EYPP+ PEP on Welfare Call.
Please see the Early Years Premium Plus Policy 2018-19 for guidance.
