Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium Spending 2016-17

Westley receives a Pupil Premium Grant from the Department for Education for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals (FSM), or who has been entitled over the last six years, Looked After Children and children of service personnel.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the underlying inequalities between children by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is used to provide additional support in raising achievement and attainment for those students that need it most.

Parents are encouraged to register their child as eligible for FSMs, if applicable, as this will mean that the school receives its maximum entitlement and also pupils on FSMs can access additional support and resources.

Barriers to PP pupils making sufficient progress

We have a mix of PP pupils so the barriers are varied. For some it is lack of support for home with reading and homework and for others it can be low self-esteem and low expectations. By using PP money we can eliminate these barriers and ensure that PP pupils make good or better progress. For some pupils it is important to get their behaviour in a good place before we see an impact on progress.

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.

Current Year Budget Allocation: £18,690.00
