What is Pupil Premium? The National Picture.
Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It was designed to give additional money to support schools in raising the attainment of children who receive free school meals, children whose parents serve in the Armed Forces and those children in local authority care. These groups of children have been identified nationally as achieving at a lower level than children from less disadvantaged backgrounds.
Where does the money come from?
Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of children who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (not universal infant free school meals), whose parents serve in the Armed Forces and children who have been looked after in local authority care continuously for more than six months.Pupil Premium Impact Report 2019-2020
Sports Premium Grant
The school receives funding from the Department for Education known as the PE and Sports Grant. Physical Development and Physical Education are fundamental parts of our curriculum offer. The role of the funding is to support initiatives beyond our core curricular offer. This grant is specifically for Primary aged pupils.
