Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the Government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Children in Local Authority care, and children with parents in the Armed Forces also bring Pupil Premium funding into school.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

At St Stephen’s Primary School we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. The School Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium. The nature of some of the interventions outlined below means many have benefitted additional children who do not receive Pupil Premium funding.

Sports Premium

PE and Sport provide our children with opportunities to develop important life skills: self-control, determination, communication, teamwork and commitment. This can lead to improved concentration, attitude and achievement in all aspects of their personal development.

In response to the success of Team GB in the London 2012 Olympic Games, the government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for the next three years to improve the provision of PE and Sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and must be spent on PE and Sport provision. We have welcomed this announcement and believe that this additional funding will enhance our provision of high quality PE, both within the school day and beyond, and will add to our existing resources.

How much funding are we receiving?
St Stephen’s received £6011 in October 2014, and another £3769 in April 2014, totalling £9780. This funding continued at the same rate until 2017. It has just been confirmed that this amount is set to increase in 2017-18 and we will update our spending plan below to reflect our increased provision in due course.

How is this money being spent?
This money is being used to employ two sports coaches to provide a quality sport experience across the school. As well as providing pupils with access to professional coaching in a wide range of sports throughout their time with us, staff are able to refer to the coaches for advice and ideas to impact upon all PE provision.

Healthy and Active Lifestyles

We are thrilled to have been recently awarded the Sainsbury’s Active Gold Mark in recognition of the breadth of sporting opportunities we offer. We also have ‘Healthy Schools’ accreditation and promote a healthy lifestyle through our curriculum, school meals and wider curriculum provision.
