Pupil Premium

All maintained schools in England and Wales are required to report on the impact of the Pupil Premium, a fund given to schools by central government on the basis of need. Pupil Premium funding is intended to support vulnerable groups, such as service children or children from low-income families. For further information about this funding see: https://www.gov.uk/pupil-premium-information-for-schools-and-alternative-provision-settings

 

Purpose of funding

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and the Government believes it is the best way to address underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers. The hope is that funding to tackle disadvantage will reach the pupils who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

 

Our school uses this funding to deliver activities and provide support to pupils who were eligible as described above, in a variety of ways. Previous funding has been used for:

 

Purchase of Dynamo maths software for use by PP children at home

Purchase of Numicon (maths) resources for use with PP children

Purchase of SEN resource kits for use with PP children

Professional development for support staff to run tailored interventions for PP children

Provision of additional Social Skills and Friendship Groups for PP children

Additional support at lunchtimes for PP children

Provision of interventions for PP children

Use of HLTAs to provide additional small group tuition to PP children in danger of missing targets or falling below expectations

Provision of extra-curricular activities and peripatetic instrument tuition to boost the confidence of PP children

Provision of 1:1 tuition to PP children in danger of missing targets

Sports Premium Funding

At Burneston Primary school we encourage pupils to take part in a range of sports, competitions and clubs throughout the year. Our children demonstrate sportsmanship in competitions, set a good example of behaviour in all PE lessons, engage with cubs and help set up equipment and resources for PE lessons, encourage others to take part and improve at sport and lead teams in competitions against other schools.

 

The Government now provides extra funding to schools for the promotion of physical exercise within school. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and money goes 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 have to spend the extra 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:

 

Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers

New or additional sport clubs

Paying for professional sport development  to train and develop school staff

Paying for sporting opportunities with an outside provider or facility (e.g. swimming, dance coaches)

Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in school games

Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport

Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs
