Pupil Premium Funding

What is the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium provides funding to students in addition to the main funding a school receives. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, is the best way to address the underlying inequalities between disadvantaged students by ensuring that funding reaches those who need it most. The funding is used to ‘close the gap’ through raising attainment and improving progress.

The Department for Education provides Pupil Premium funding for pupils who:

  • are looked after by the Local Authority in Care;
  • are members of a family of an Armed Forces Parent;
  • or have been in the last six years, eligible for Free School Meals.

Pupil Premium is an important grant for schools and a valuable opportunity for eligible parents to receive even more support for their children in schools. If you think your child may possibly be eligible for free meals, even if you don’t want your child to eat school meals, we would urge you to apply.

Pupil Premium Summary.

Sports Premium Spending 2017-18

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered.

This means that we should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

All pupils at Westley all pupils have 2.5 hours of PE/Sport as part of their curriculum. Over 70% of pupils have taken part in at least 1 sports club in the year so far.
