Pupil Premium Funding (including Covid Catch up premium)

Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

  • generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school
  • often do not perform as well as their peers

The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

PE and Sports premium funding 2020-21
We use this money to buy in a PE specialist teacher for 3 days a week and buy into the Sports UK festival programme. Members of school staff observe sessions in order to develop their own teaching skills in PE. In addition to this our PE teacher works closely with the inclusion mentor to develop our Year 5 sports leaders who assist in leading sports activities over the lunch time period. Our PE teacher provides a variety of after school clubs over the year and our children attend a number of sports festivals competing against other schools in the local area organised by Sports UK. We buy in the support of a Heath Mentor who works with children across school on a range of health focussed activities including helping reluctant children engage in sports activities.
