Pupil Premium Information
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools to support the education of children from low income families who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been in the last 6 years (Ever 6
FSM). Looked after children and those of service personnel are also eligible for the pupil premium grant. National statistics show that this group of children do not always achieve as well as other children. Therefore, the aim of the funding is to raise the attainment and progress of this identified group and close any attainment and progress gap between their peers.
PE and Sports Grant Information
The PE and Sport Premium Funding is a Government grant that is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sport activities they offer to their pupils. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles for all pupils.
