What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding that the government gives to schools for each pupil on roll where they are deemed to be disadvantaged.
The Department of Education website is a good source of additional information. Click here to view.

School PE and Sport Premium Funding
All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation, and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.
Since September 2013 the government has provided additional funding to schools for Physical Education (PE) and sport.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In most cases, the number of pupils is determined by using the data from the January school census.
This year (2023-2024) schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
