The government gives the school additional funding known as Pupil Premium and Sports Premium for certain groups of children.
Please see below for further information.
We track all our pupils’ progress very carefully and are aware of the barriers to learning for our disadvantaged children. With this in mind we provide specific support or interventions as needed. The impact of theseis reviewed at least termly, but the school maintains close oversight of our disadvantaged children and will adjust any interventions accordingly.
Our pupil premium allocation for 2016-2017 was £7,740.
Detailed information is available from the school and made available as appropriate.
Examples of spending are on pupil attendance at After School Clubs, School Trips and to participate in Music Exams. The majority aided the school in providing a Learning Support Assistant who supported disadvantaged pupils at school. Detailed information is available from the school and made available as appropriate.
The impact of this funding on targeted children is as follows:
- Improved social skills
- Improved progress in reading, writing and maths
- Increased confidence and improved self esteem
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding to spend on improving the quality of sport, PE and physical activity for all their children. In 2019-2020 we received £16,610.
Purpose of funding
Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport as well as increasing the amount of physical activities undertaken by the children, but we have the freedom to choose how we do this.
Following the success of the PE and sports coaching delivered over the previous three years; our teachers are now delivering their own PE lessons. We have, however, retained the services of Premier Sport to deliver after school clubs.
