Pupil and Sport Premium
You can find out more about the Pupil Premium allocation on the Department for Education’s website here.
Pupil Premium funding is used to support a raft of interventions specifically targeted at the children with Pupil Premium in our school Academy.
The key principles of the use of our Pupil Premium funding are addressing individual need and equality of opportunity where there are difficult circumstances and providing strong additional academic support for our Pupil Premium pupils with the allocated funding.
Pupil Premium is an identified and monitored attribute for children at a whole school and departmental level. All teaching staff are aware of these children within their classes and are asked to be mindful of when and where support needs to be drawn from the funding to provide equality of opportunity.
Key barriers to pupil’s attainment are:
- Lack of opportunities at home to read and develop early reading, including phonics
- EAL – poor oral language skills and limited range of vocabulary
- Emotional and social issues that impact on relationships in class and school
- Challenges in home lives make it difficult for carers and parents to support children in their learning at home
- Poor punctuality / Low attendance – lack of value placed upon regular attendance and punctuality by families
- Low home aspirations and expectations
- Lack of family resources mean children do not access a range of wider learning experiences to enrich their learning and understanding

The Sport Premium aims to improve the physical activity of pupils in order to help promote an active and healthy lifestyle. Key areas of improvement include increasing confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport, offering a broader range of sports to all pupils and also increasing participation in competitive sport.
