Pupil Premium funding is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.
These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals and those looked after by the local authority. There is also a smaller amount for children of armed services personnel. This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocated to schools per Free School Meal pupil, is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility” Dept of Education
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done.

You can also find more information regarding pupil premium in our ‘Pupil Premium Policy’ on the school policies page.

PE and Sports Premium
What is the PE and sport Premium?
The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The money can only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. In February 2014, the government committed to continue the funding until 2020.
How to use the PE and Sport Premium
We must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer to pupils. This will encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
This means we will use the premium to:
- Develop or add to the PE already in place (referring to the aims below).
- Build capacity and capability within the PE and school sport to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining our school in the future years.
The 5 key indicators where improvements should be seen are:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, aiming for 30 minutes a day within school time.
- The profile of PE and sport raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvements.
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching P.E and sport.
- Increased participation in competitive sport.
- Broader experience of a range of sport and activities offered to all pupils.
Here is the list of events/competitions we took part in 2022/2023 academic year.
