Pupil Premiums

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to increase the attainment and aspiration of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, including families who have been eligible for Free School Meals in the past six years and Looked After Children.

In 2011-2012 the Government launched its Pupil Premium Funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals. From 2012-2013, this funding was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years. In addition children who are Looked After Children and children whose parents work in the forces also receive the grant. This money is allocated to schools to enable them to provide targeted support and initiatives  to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

It will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

Sports Premium

What is the Sports premium?

The Government is providing funding of £450 million over  three academic years  2013/14, 2014/15  and 2015/2016 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

Purpose of funding

The school must  spend the sports premium on improving and developing their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the flexibility  to choose how they do this.
