The Pupil Premium (PP) is additional funding received by schools to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds. It is used by this school to address some of the underlying inequalities faced by the children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most through targeted support and intervention.
Objectives for Pupil Premium
- The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.
- The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.
- As far as its powers allow, the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.
- We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.
This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary school head teachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
In the Autumn Statement 2013, the Chancellor, George Osbourne announced an additional year's £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year.
On 6th February 2014 the Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE & Sport Premium until 2020.
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
- The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
The COVID-19 catch-up funding must be used to close any attainment gaps caused by school closures and restrictions due to the pandemic.
