Pupil Premium and Sports Grant

All schools receive funding called Pupil Premium, which relates 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.

Pupil Premium

For the year 2019-20, all schools in England received £1,320 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’s vision for PE and school sport, supported by the national partners is:

"All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport."

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. The government has provided double funding for 2019/2020.

Swimming

The government requires schools to report on the number of children, in Year 6, who met the national swimming requirements. At Dixons Manningham we teach swimming in Year 3, 55% of our Y6 pupils met the requirement, when they went swimming in 2015-2016 (Y6 in 2018-2019).

National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

Mrs Bonner did a fab science experiment with her son today. Where does salt go when you mix it with water? You don't need anything fancy, just a couple of pinches of salt in an egg cup of water! I would love to hear what you think! https://t.co/Z3tDDUgunk
