Pupil Premium, Sport Premium and Catch-up funding


Pupil Premium
Each year, the school has been given additional Government funding called Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). PPG provides funding for raising the attainment of disadvantaged children and closing the gap with their peers. We have attached a document which outlines the funding our school has been allocated and how it has supported our children.

Sport Premium
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150million for physical education (PE) and sport. We have attached a document which outlines how much additional funding our school has been given and how it has been allocated.

Please see the attaced file on how we plan to spend this year's sport premium funding to ensure our children get the best from physical education in all parts of their school day. 


Catch up funding strategy 2020-21

See our Catch up funding strategy document below

Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedneted disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.

We know that we have the professional knowledge and expertise in the education system to ensure that children and young people recover and get back on track. Returning to normal educational routines as quickly as possible will be critical to our national recovery, and the government intends for schools and colleges to fully open in September.

The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.

Although all children have had their education disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is likely that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit. That is why, alongside the universal catch-up premium, we are launching a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help.
