The Government gives schools money to help children from lower income families do their best. This funding is called “Pupil Premium”. For every child registered, our school receives £1,320. With this money we are able to support identified groups of pupils to boost their attainment and close the gap between them and their peers.
This funding was introduced in September 2011 and is now allocated to schools based on the number of pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the previous six years. Schools also receive funding based on the number of pupils they have who have been in the care of the Local Authority continuously for more than six months, and also for any service personnel children who attend the school (with a parent in the armed forces) at any point in the last 3 years.
In order for the school to receive this additional funding on the basis of free school meals, parents must register their child for a Free School Meal if they are eligible. This includes any parents of pupils in Reception, Year 1 and 2 who now automatically receive a free school meal.
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant, our main objectives as a school with related outcomes and how we allocate the funding.
We believe that PE and school sport contribute to children achieving their full potential. By competing and taking part in school sports and PE children can develop resilience, respect, and a sense of accomplishment.
Using the PE and Sport Premium
In line with Ofsted recommendations our Sport Premium Funding is to be spent addressing improvements in each of the following 5 key indicators.
- Increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5-18 engage in at least 60 minutes go physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
- Increased confidence, knowledge, and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
- Increased participation in competitive sport.
