Pupil Premium and PE Premium

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. From April 2012, this was replaced by the ‘Ever6’ i.e. it is paid for every pupil who has been FSM at any point in the last six years. A Pupil Premium Plus is also provided for children adopted from the care system.

PE Premium

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 engaging all pupils in regular physical activity, by increasing the profile of sport across the school and by increasing participation in competitive sport.

Some of the given examples of how to use the funding are as follows:

  • Hire specialist sports coaches;
  • Support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities and running extended school clubs;
  • Enter or run more sport competitions;
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games;
  • Encourage children to take on leadership roles that support physical activity.



Funding received: £18,995



Expense Benefit Percentage spend of budget
Cricket Coaching In the summer term, children in various year groups had one hour per week cricket coaching provided by a specialist cricket coach. The coach also provides a subsidised school club. Children are introduced to basic cricket skills, which are further developed in PE lessons in the summer term. Older children learn more advanced skills. 5%
Football and Netball Coaching Kick London provided training each week for each of the Mayor’s Cup (School Games) girls’ and boys’ squads. The Kick London PE teacher and Sports Co-ordinator also attended and managed the teams at the Mayor’s Cup matches. In addition they provided some netball, tag rugby and cricket coaching to targeted groups, as well as specific training before Borough competitions. The school also provides a number of subsidised school clubs open to all abilities. 35%
Membership of the Hammersmith School Sport Partnership Schools are represented by the School Games Organiser (SGO), who supports all participating schools by improving the provision of sport in the Borough. The SGO organises the competitions, which St Stephen’s always enters if possible.  Membership includes the cost of entering nearly all of the competitions, as well as meetings between all participating schools’ Sports Co-ordinators, and an annual conference. 5%
Sports Day (including medals and stickers, some equipment such as howlers for throwing, and organisation of the event) and House Tournaments All children from Years 1-6 took part in a competition at the Perivale athletics track. All those children competed in the same events, rotating between track and field. Parents and carers are encouraged to watch and support.

All children in Early Years took part in a fun morning of sports and activities in Ravenscourt Park.

House Tournaments take place at the end of each PE unit, so that all children are given the opportunity to incorporate their learning into a competitive situation. Each unit of PE is finished with a competition to consolidate the learning of that half-term.


Intra-school football tournaments All KS2 children too part in an intra-school football tournament off-site at local 4G pitches, in mixed ability teams. Year 6 played in teams mixed with another local primary school. 3%
Sports Co-ordinator


Co-ordinated competitive sport, ensuring entry into as many Borough competitions (including School Games) and other local competitions as possible; arranged numerous inter-school friendly matches for as many children as possible and entered many tournaments organised by local independent schools 27%
Sports Equipment Kwik cricket balls, PE storage equipment and trophies 10%
Sports evening An evening where we celebrated the achievements of the children in sport, where they had dinner followed by an awards ceremony. We invited all children who had participated in a Hammersmith & Fulham School Games event – in excess of 100 children – who all received a medal. There were some specific awards for various Year 6 children. 5%


Continued increase and wider participation across the children throughout the school; tournament success; ability to enter almost all Borough competitions, 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 and Borough events.

By ensuring continual communication with various schools in the area, and by having a dedicated coordinator to organise participation, these developments are sustainable.


All children in Year 3 have a weekly swimming lesson at the Janet Adegoke swimming pool, with the aim of ensuring that by the end of the year, all can swim at least 25 metres. In the summer term we will review the current Year 6 class to assess their ability to swim 25 metres competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of 25 metres, and to see whether they can use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
