Pupil Premium & PE Grant

The government introduced Pupil Premium with the aim of increasing social mobility and reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally.  Pupil Premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or background. The funding brings in £1320 per pupil. It is allocated to schools, based on the number of children who come from low-income families – this is defined as any child who is known to have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. This is one of the current government’s key education policies. It is based on findings that show that, as a group, children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in time, have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible. It also includes children where a parent serves in the armed forces.

In 2013 the DfE introduced Pupil Premium Plus for looked after and previously looked after children. In doing this, the DfE acknowledged the enduring impact of trauma and loss in children's lives and the key role of schools in supporting children who have had a difficult start in life. Pupil premium plus is currently £1,900 per child per year.

Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving FSM will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time

We would encourage any parent(s) with an eligible child(ren) to make themselves known to us.  This information will be recorded and held in confidence and in line with all Data Protection requirements and used to support the learning needs of your child(ren).

PE Grant and Sports Funding 

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.   Schools are to spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.   

Holy Trinity CofE Junior School has worked hard to enhance PE within the school.  Over the last two years the focus was professional development.  The aim was to develop the skills of class teachers.  Teachers undertook 1:1 development with a specialist sports teacher which aimed to build knowledge and understanding in specific areas of the PE curriculum.  Since this professional development teachers are more confident with teaching PE and lessons are more skills based.  We have also had more children participating in school sports clubs.

This professional development has continued so that teachers will have benefited from 1:1 support from a specialist sports teacher.  All teachers have continued to work on specific development areas and have implemented these into their practice.  The specialist support that teachers have received is now being used to stretch all children during lessons so that they can achieve their full potential especially the more able.
