PE and Sport premium

Pupil Premium and PE and Sports Premium Funding

 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

From April 2012, the government extended Pupil Premium funding to children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years. For the 2015 to 2016 financial year, funding for the Pupil Premium has increased to £2.545 billion.

For the current school year (2016/17), schools will receive £1,320 per eligible pupil of primary-school age.

 

How we use the Pupil Premium

 

All schools in receipt of Pupil Premium funding are required to publish details of how the school spends its Pupil Premium funding, and the effect this has had on the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding.

Reports must include:

  • how much Pupil Premium funding you received for this academic year
  • details of how you intend to spend the funding, including your reasons and evidence
  • details of how you spent the Pupil Premium funding you received for last academic year
  • how it made a difference to the attainment of disadvantaged pupils

 

Our reports are available as downloads on this page.

 

School accountability for the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

The government also holds schools to account through performance tables, which include data on:

  • the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding
  • the progress made by these pupils
  • the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

 

PE and Sports Premium funding at Brampton

 

PE and sports premium is allocated to schools by the government, based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.  The object of the funding is for schools to be able to ‘make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sports that they offer’.

The current allocation is £8,000 per school, with an additional £5 per pupil.  Our school is thus eligible for an additional payment of approximately £1,795 , based on our current pupil numbers.

 

How we use the PE and Sport Premium funding

Given the aim of the funding, we ensure that it is used to deliver improvements, over and above the quality PE and sports teaching that we already provide at Brampton.

 

Areas where we use our funding includes:

  • hire  a qualified sports coach to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools
  •  

Reporting the use and impact of the PE and Sport Premium

As a recipient of PE and sport premium funding, we publish details of how we spend this money, and the effect it has had on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.

We include:

  • how much PE and sport premium funding we received for this academic year
  • a full breakdown of how we’ve spent or will spend the funding this year
  • the effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
  • how we will make sure these improvements are sustainable
