Pupil and Sports Premium
Every school is allocated additional funding under Pupil Premium and Sports Premium schemes. As a school we have created reports which detail how this money has been spent and the impact on our pupils.
What is the Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is the name given to the additional funding allocated to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between Pupil Premium pupils and their peers. It is generally allocated to pupils who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), to children recently in the looked-after care system and to the children of service families.
During 2018 - 2019 all state primary schools received £1,320 for each pupil eligible for FSM or £2,300 for Looked-after children defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority. £2,300 for children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order. There was also an additional £300 allocation for each child from a service family.
The pupil premium for 2019 to 2020 will include pupils recorded in the January 2019 school census who are known to have been eligible for FSM since May 2013, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2019.
The pupil premium for 2019 to 2020 will include pupils recorded in the January 2019 school census and alternative provision census, who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.
The grant may be spent in the following ways:
Our Vision for Pupil Premium
As a school we believe that all pupils have an entitlement to achieve their potential whatever their circumstances. As a school we will provide opportunities to break through barriers, increase resilience and place inclusivity at the heart of all we do. As the leadership of the school we will ensure that all resources are effectively deployed to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed.
In order to ensure we allocate our pupil premium funding effectively each year, the leadership team meet and discuss any potential barriers to learning for our Disadvantaged (pupil premium) children. Action is then taken as to how to adapt current provision or put in additional provision, to ensure there is a positive impact on progress. The progress and attainment of our Disadvantaged pupils is analysed at termly Pupil Progress meetings between the leadership team and class teacher. The provision for our Disadvantaged pupils is monitored and reviewed at least termly, at every Full Governing Board meeting and in the termly Headteacher Report to Governors.
Potential barriers to learning for our disadvantaged pupils are:
PE & Sports Premium
At Wolverley Sebright, we know that PE and Sport is an integral part of our school curriculum. Physical Education and the promotion of Healthy Minds and Healthy Bodies inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in physically- demanding activities and helps all our pupils to become confident in a way which supports their fitness and health.
We provide outstanding Physical Education through high quality teaching and an exceptional curriculum. Our pupils are encouraged to achieve their personal best at all times and are challenged to succeed and excel in Physical Education and school sport.
All our pupils take part in at least 30 minutes of daily physical activity through PE lessons, lunchtimes and extra-curricular activities.
We also believe that our pupils should have the opportunity to attend and compete in festival or competition to learn new skills and gain experience. Our pupils also compete in the inter- house competitions to build and develop our Sports Values which include: determination, fairness, honesty, team work and respect.
School Games Gold Award
We are thrilled to share that the high quality sports provision within our school has been recognised again this year. The school has been awarded the School Games Gold Award for the second year running. This builds on the silver we were awarded the previous year.
Well done to all our pupils and our PE/Games staff who completed the application but more importantly ensured our pupils have a comprehensive timetable of sports and games throughout the year.
