Pupil Premium and PE/Sport Premium
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
What is it?
In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium Funding, a grant allocated to schools in addition to main school funding. Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools based on the number of pupils on roll who are known to have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. Each of these pupils will attract a specific amount of funding. Children who have previously been entitled to FSM, but are no longer, are referred to as ‘ever 6’. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium in any way they think will support raising the attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. From September 2012 we have been required to publish online information about our allocation of Pupil Premium, our strategy for it's use and the impact it has had.The current statement appears below.
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean we could still claim the Pupil Premium funding.
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Sport Premium is an allocation of additional funding from the Department for Education, given to every school with primary age children to support the development of Physical Education, School Sport and Competition. This money is ring-fenced.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used, as well as the impact this is having on pupils. Our current statement appears below.
