Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium (PP)/Pupil Premium Grant was introduced by the Government to provide additional funding to address the gap in educational attainment and long term economic wellbeing between socially disadvantaged children and young people compared to their peers. Each school reports on their pupil premium funding.  Our pupil premium numbers are too small for any strategy to be anonymised at the current time.

Sports Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The Sports Premium is a grant allocated to schools for the development of a high quality PE curriculum and for the promotion of healthy lifestyles. The PE and sports funding can only be spent on sports and PE provision. 
Purpose of Funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Supporting and engaging  the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.


How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?

We believe that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that all children are given the opportunity to compete in competitive sports and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

On the supporting document below we show how we intend to spend the sports funding during this academic year.


Catch up Premium

What is the Catch up Premium? 
The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. School allocations will be calculated on a number of pupil basis. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months.
