School Premiums

Pupil Premium

After prior attainment, poverty is the single most important factor in predicting life chances. Pupil Premium is money allocated by the government to ensure that pupils are not disadvantaged academically due to family circumstances. It is to assist with addressing attainment inequalities.

The Governors at St. Catherine’s allocate the pupil premium grant funding to support our children academically, socially and specifically those with barriers to learning.

In April 2011 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium, which additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.  Schools have the freedom to spend this funding as they see fit based upon their knowledge of pupil needs.

PE & Sports Premium Funding Expenditure and Impact

Background to the PE & Sports Premium Funding

The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for each academic year since 2013/2014. The PE & Sports Premium Funding is given to schools to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to Primary School Headteachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
