Pupil Premium & Sport Premium
The Pupil Premium is additional government funding provided to schools to help close the attainment gap between pupils from low-income households and their peers. It aims to help overcome challenges that pupils might have in terms of language and communication skills, attendance, punctuality and self-confidence.
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is allocated to schools for each pupil who is eligible for free school meals and for pupils whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
The Pupil Premium Strategy Statement explains how the school has chosen to use this additional funding to close the attainment gap of its disadvantaged pupils. The statement is organised into two halves: planned expenditure for the current academic year and a review of the previous year's expenditure.
The PE and Sport Premium is government funding allocated to schools to enable them to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) they offer.
The PE and Sport Premium should be used to: Develop or add to the PESSPA activities that the school already offers; Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
