Pupil Premium and Sports Funding

Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment and progress of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who are registered or have been registered for free school meals over the past 6 years. It is also available for pupils that have been ‘looked after’ for more than six months or have been adopted from care (from April 2014)

  • The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
  • In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils. 
  • Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and to publish online information about how they have used the Premium.

Funding received:

For the financial year April 2018 to March 2019 we received £25,340.

The percentage of our pupils known to be eligible for Pupil Premium funding is 8%. 

How we have used our Pupil Premium:

Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving the funding will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.  Through the school’s rigorous monitoring, assessment and development programmes, day to day teaching is of a high standard across school which means all pupils including pupil premium pupils received quality first teaching daily.

Specific Spending of Pupil Premium

HLTA (5 x am sessions) to deliver specific interventions where needed across the whole school


Pastoral Support Worker (working each day from 11am-4.30pm), providing pastroal support to pupils and families


Payment of Extra-Curricular Activities for pupils in receipt of the funding.

Sports Funding

What is the Sports Premium?

In March 2013 the Government announced that it would provide additional funding to primary schools to support the improvement of provision of PE and sport. The funding, allocated to headteachers in primary schools is ringfenced and can only be spent on PE and sport in primary schools. The headteacher and governors are accountable for the spending of the funding.

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport. It is to benefit primary-aged pupils and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
