The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
Pupil Premium is an additional sum of money which is made available to schools and which is calculated using the number of pupils on roll who have been eligible for a free school meal within the past six years. The money is made available to ensure that gap in attainment between the Pupil Premium group of children and the non-Pupil premium Group gets narrower and so that the attainment for the Pupil Premium group improves over time. You can find out more about our Pupil Premium Strategy planning on our website.

NOTE: Catch up Premium is written and agreed by Governors but will be amended in light of most recent assessments coming in.

Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium
ALL pupils leaving primary school should be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- 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 sport and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
