Pupil Premium and Sports Premium

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement.

The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years (this categorisation changed in 2012).

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used. 

  • At Plaxtol Primary School we organise teaching and learning in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way possible.
  • We ensure that the appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that social disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
  • We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged or have ‘gaps’ in their learning and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
  • We allocate pupil premium funding to support any child the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged and should be making better progress.
  • We will allocate pupil premium funding after needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.

PE and Sport Premium Grant

Sport Premium is a government funded payment aimed at improving and increasing the provision of PE in schools across the country. The amount of money paid is based on the number of pupils in the school and it is ring-fenced, meaning it has to be spent solely on PE. It is also expected that the money is spent in a manner that will improve PE in school in a sustainable manner. Therefore, when the money is no longer available, PE provision will have improved as a result of this funding.

The documents below set out in more detail how the grant was spent at Plaxtol School last year and what our priorities are for future spending.
