Extra Funding

Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. From April 2014 children who are looked after will attract a higher rate of funding than children from low-income families – the ‘Pupil Premium Plus’. This is to reflect the unique challenges they face at school where they often struggle to keep up with their peers at both primary and secondary level. It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium allocated to their school is spent.  Schools will be held accountable for their use of the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the impact this has on educational attainment. We publish online details of our pupil premium allocation and our plans to spend it in the current year.

Sports Premium Funding

What is school sports funding?

School sports funding is allocated each year to schools s an additional funding source.

Schools must spend this funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money. The governments vision of the PE and sport premium was that all pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

School Budget

Each year we need to share with parents our overall funding allocation and a brief breakdown of how it is spent. Each term Governors meet as a resource committee and one of their termly activities is to scrutinise the budget in finer detail. If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to ask. A copy of this budget statement is also sent out to all parents each April after the new budget is approved by Governors.

Your kind words

“A lovely school with a good atmosphere for learning and having fun”
We are so proud of the progress our son has made in Year 1.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have helped my daughter this year.
Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time as a Year 4 student.
It’s nice to have an informative school report that concentrates on the positives of my child’s learning.
Keep up the good work, without confidence it’s hard for a child to grow.
You were both very understanding and I really do appreciate this. Thank you so much.

She has really enjoyed Year 3. We are really pleased with the progress she has made in many subjects – especially in maths.
I just wanted to say “well done” for this year’s year 6 sats results! They were amazing and I know that it would have taken sheer hard work from the children and teachers to enable your pupils to achieve with the unrealistic expectations set the Gove & Morgan camp.
