Roding Primary School


SPORTS AND PUPIL PREMIUM

Sports and pupil premiums are additional funding allocated to schools by the Government to either support specific groups of children or to improve the quality of sport and PE for all children. Specific information on the amount of funding recieved, how it has been used and the effect this has had on the children of the school can be found in the following documents:

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium (PP) is a specific funding stream that is targeted at pupils from deprived backgrounds who are likely, according to National data, to underachieve. The Government has defined these children as being Free School Means (FSM), Service children and Looked After Children (LAC).

The school decides how to utilise the funding as it is recognised at Government level that they are best placed to assess and identify the additionalo provision to be made. Funding and expenditure is clearly tracked to close the attainment gap and enable children to overcome the barriers and challenges they face.

Purposes

  • - To ensure that children from FSM, Service & LAC groups have equality of opportunity in all areas of school life.
  • - To build on our first principle of making quality first teaching our core aim.
  • - To use the money intelligently to address academic and social issues that data and our knowledge of wider family issues tell us may limit progress.
  • - To use validated, evidence based options for this support and intervention, not just always 'more of the same'.
  • - To regularly try, evaluate and discontinue or continue these initiatives.
  • - To reflect with other providers and evaluators when making decisions about initiatives.
  • - To inform and reassure parents when their children receive added interventions.
  • - Although primarily directed at specific pupils there is no bar to all pupils being included in any provision.

Objective

At Roding we are strongly committed to enabling every child to achieve as highly as possible and we aim to support PP children to make accelerated progress and close the attainment gap. We use a variety of ways in which to achieve this, including but not limited to:

  • - Support children in class by employing and training effective additional support staff.
  • - Support children through targeted intervention groups to address specific issues.
  • - Extend the school day and enable children to attend clubs and activities to enrich the curriculum.
  • - Support parents and families through the work of Every Child Matters Co-ordinators (ECMC).
  • - Enable staff to access additional support in planning to ensure the needs of all children are met.

What is the P.E and Sports Premium?

The government is allocating £450 million for the academic years 2013-16 to provide new funding for the primary school sport. The money will go directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for those two years. Here at Roding that will mean we receive £12,000 a year. Schools must spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Objective

At Roding we are strongly committed to PE and this is evident in the increasingly wide range of activities offered in and out of school, including being involved in competitive sports. We work with a number of specialist providers to ensure we deliver high quality provision. We recognise that PE plays an important role in the health and wellbeing of children and the positive impact PE and extra-curricular activities can have on the attitudes, confidence and academic achievement of all our children. We are using our PE and Sports Premium grant to:

  • - Appoint specialist sports coaches to provide a wide range of high quality activities during and after school.
  • - Continue to develop the role of the Playground Squad in leading games, providing positive role models and helping to promote positive behaviour.
  • - Develop intra and inter-school competitive opportunities for sports.
