The Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. It is given to help children from low income families, children who are in care and those who have been adopted.
The aim of our pupil premium strategy is to support the disadvantaged children of all abilities, including high attainers, to achieve our school aims and objectives and to achieve their potential.
The Pupil Premium Strategy document below outlines how we are intending to meet this aim; the strategies being used and the intended outcomes.
Further information about the Pupil Premium, including up-to-date information on the allocated amount school can receive for each child who is eligible for funding can be found at:
How do I make an application for my child to receive Pupil Premium funding?
If you receive state benefits such as Income Support or income based JSA or ESA, you can apply for Free School Meals for your child. This automatically entitles your children to receive Pupil Premium funding. So, even if your child is in Reception – Year 2 and they already receive Universal Free School Meals, it is important to apply for Free School Meals. Otherwise, your child will not receive Pupil Premium funding.
We can help you make an application for Free School Meals if you contact the school office who will talk you through it. You will need to have your National Insurance number, or National Asylum Seeker number. Please also enquire at the School Office for all other Pupil Premium applications or enquiries.
The Sports Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since 2013 to ‘provide new, substantial primary school sport funding’. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding include:
The details for how we have spent the Sports Premium to further engage children’s interest and participation in a wide variety of physical education here at SRG can be found in the Sports Premium report below.
