The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Since 2013/14 this has also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the ever 6 FSM measure). Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.
Our vision for the school is to see sport integrated across the curriculum, with healthy living being emphasised in lessons and encouraged outside of school. Every child deserves the opportunity to access the sport curriculum. One of our aims is for as many children as possible to play a variety of sports and to represent the school creating memorable and meaningful sporting experiences.
We feel that playing sport:
- keeps the body healthy
- enables children to become more self-confident
- allows children to feel a sense of pride and self-worth
- provides opportunities for children to learn the importance of team work
PE and sports funding
From September 2013, the government has provided all schools with extra funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in schools. Details of the Sports Premium funding for the current academic year are shown here:

Covid Catch-Up Premium
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. As a response to mitigating the disruption to education, schools have been allocated an additional sum of money - The ‘Covid Catch-Up Premium’. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months. There is also a requirement to share a plan of how this funding will be spent on a school’s website. Please click here to see a review of our Covid Catch-up Premium Plan.
