Pupil Premium and PE & Sports Premium funding

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium funding was introduced by the government in order to address the attainment gap between vulnerable children and others.

The money is sent to schools based on the number of children in school who:

  • Are eligible for free school meals (FSM), or who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years
  • Are currently looked after by a Local Authority, or have been in the last six years
  • Have parents who are currently serving in the armed forces

This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

The money helps to fund key initiatives which prioritise support for some of the additional needs of pupil premium children.

Sports Premium Funding

The government gives money to schools (called the PE and Sport Premium) to improve sport and PE, so that young people have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives.  A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of their PE, physical activity and sport.

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that the school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Schools should use the premium to secure improvements in the following five key indicators:

  1. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  2. Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Schools must produce a report each year to explain how they have spent the funding.  The reports are below.
