Pupil Premium and Sports Funding

All schools receive funding called Pupil Premium relating to the number of pupils on Free School Meals in order to narrow the gap towards national expectations and give all children the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Although all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 now get Universal Free School Meals, schools only receive the Pupil Premium funding if parents or carers are registered for Free School Meals. Please ask at the office for advice.

For the year 2016-17, all schools in England received £1320 per eligible pupil. During this academic year, they include: children currently on Free School Meals (FSM), children who have received FSM within the last 6 years (Ever6), children who are looked after (CLA) and children of service personnel.

In future years, the term Disadvantaged will be used to include FSM, Ever6 and CLA who are eligible for funding in line with amendments by the DfE.

Sports Grant
The government has provided funding of £450 million from 2013/14 to 2015/16 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The 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 to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Changes are being made to the Sports Grant from September 2017, this is likely to increase the contributions to school.  When more information is made available to schools we will create a new expenditure report.
