Pupil Premium & Sports Premium Funding

What is the Pupil Premium?  - The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Its purpose is to provide additional funding to support schools in raising attainment for those children who are eligible for free school meals, or who are in the care of the local authority. It has been recognized that in general these groups have a lower attainment than those from less disadvantaged backgrounds.  Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit to support targeted pupils. 


The school’s pupil premium funding will benefit pupils from those vulnerable groups either directly or indirectly.  See our Pupil Premium Funding plan below.


What is Sport Premium Funding? - This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport to provide money which will go directly to primary schools for expenditure on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.  This funding is solely for sport and PE resources within school, which schools have to use to improve their provision of PE and sport. Every school will have the freedom to choose the way they do it.  See our Sports Premium Funding plan below.
