Pupil Premium & Sports Premium

Pupil premium strategy statement 2021-2022 with planned expenditure for 22/23

Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. The funding is used to improve attainment, drawing on evidence of effective practice. Pupil premium is not a personal budget for individual pupils.  

Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when used across 3 areas:

  1. High-quality teaching, such as staff professional development.
  2. Targeted academic support, such as tutoring.
  3. Wider strategies to address non-academic barriers to success in schools, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support



Sports premium 

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for 5 academic years.
