The Pupil Premium is a per pupil payment, additional to school funding, which is intended to address underlying socioeconomic inequalities between pupils. The Premium was introduced in April 2011 and paid to children eligible for free school meals (FSM) in that year. A Pupil Premium Plus is also provided for children adopted from the care system.

Government guidance on spending the PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools:
Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, by improving the following:
Some of the given examples of how to use the funding are as follows:
PLEASE NOTE: We carried forward 45% of the 2019/2020 sports premium following restrictions arising from Covid-19.
We had to spend this initially by March 2021, which then got extended to July 2021. On June 17th 2021, the Education Secretary announced that the ring-fencing had been further relaxed, and that any remaining budget from both 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 would need to be spent by 31 July 2022.
BUDGET: £19,246 (2020/2021 sports premium) plus 45% of 2019/2020 premium (£8620)

IMPACT OF EXPENDITURE:
Continued increase and wider participation across the children throughout the school; tournament success; ability to enter almost all Borough competitions, always taking as many teams/children as the tournaments permit, plus lots of friendlies; very high proportion of children in KS2 representing the school in at least one sport in either a competition or “friendly” match. Every child in KS2 has participated to the extent possible in both House tournaments and an intra-school football tournament.
We have entered nearly all relevant competitions, with a very high proportion of children in Years 5&6 having represented the school in at least one School Games Competition.
All children have the opportunity to compete at the level that is most appropriate for them, whether through intra-school house competitions, friendly matches or Borough events.
By ensuring continual communication with various schools in the area and by having a dedicated co-ordinator to organise participation, these developments are sustainable.
All children in Year 3 take part in an intensive swimming course offered by the Janet Adegoke swimming pool with the aim of ensuring that all can swim at least 25 metres.
