Pupil & Sports Premium
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Participation in sports and the development of a healthy lifestyle is very important in our school. We believe that positive involvement in Physical Education and sporting activities help to promote key skills and values in our children that they will use in many other areas of their lives.
The DfE allocates PE and Sport Premium money to each school and this funding, along with carefully planned funding from the core staffing budget and the dedication and commitment of the school, are leading to opportunities to access a wide range of sports, including those which are new and unusual, developing skills and increased participation in physical activity.
We are committed to using the funding to enhance provision and ensure that our approach is sustainable, resulting in ongoing improvements in the health and fitness of children across school.
Through this commitment to sporting achievement our school has been awarded the Sainsbury’s School Games ‘Gold’ Award for years: 2014-15, 2015-16, 2017-18 and last year 2018-19. We are incredibly proud of our staff and pupils for this achievement and are working to build on this year on year.
