Pupil Premium & PE and Sports Funding

The Pupil Premium 2015-16

What is the pupil premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
  • registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • been in care for 6 months or longer
  • Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 1 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order
  • Pupils in Year Groups R to 11 recorded as Ever 4 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.
In the 2015 to 2016 financial year, schools will receive:
  • £1300 for each eligible primary-aged pupil -FSM6
  • £1900 Children looked After CLA
  • £1900 Adopted Children
  • £300 Service Children

PE and Sport Development Grant 2016-7

The DfE PE and Sport Grant for the academic year 2016-7 is £9800.

Cullercoats Primary School recognises that Physical Education and Sport is a strength of the school. The DfE PE and Sport Grant for the academic year 2016-7 is £9800. 
Our aim is to continue to deliver two hours of high quality physical education per week to our pupils. Offer additional opportunities through clubs and activities that engage and educate our pupils to develop healthy, active lifestyles and a lifelong appreciation and understanding of the benefits of physical activity and sport. Increase the confidence of staff to teach Physical Education through specific CPD and training. Provide children with the opportunity to participate in quality competitions throughout the year.
This grant has been used to:-
  • Offer our pupils a range of different sporting opportunities across the school both during school time and through extra curricular activities.
  • Increase opportunities to those children who do not participate in sporting or physical activities.
  • Provide quality CPD and training to staff.
  • Purchase additional equipment for use in PE lessons and extra curricular activities.
  • Cover staffing and transportation costs to various sporting competitions throughout the year.
