The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
Year 7 Catch-up Premium
Primary Sport Premium
For the academic year 2018 – 2019 additional funding continues to be provided by the government to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and Sport in Primary schools. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision. This, in turn, encourages pupils to develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered.
The funding is based on the number of pupils in Years 1 – 6 and these numbers are taken from the January Census (2018). Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 plus £5 per pupil in addition to this.
For the academic year 2015/16 sports premium funding was £10,029
For the academic year 2016/17 sports premium funding is expected to be approximately £10,165
