Pupil Premium

‘PE and Sport Premium Funding is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils. We are spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. Schools receive funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money’.(source: Department for Education website)

Sports Premium has been given directly to Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of PE and School Sport provision. Ofsted will increase monitoring of Physical Education as a result of this increased funding.  Representatives from Sport England, the Association for Physical Education and the Sport and Recreational Alliance have suggested to the Government the best way of using the funding is by schools employing a specialist Sports Coach. PE and School Sport at the Neatishead and Salhouse Federation is seen as a key factor in providing an inclusive and exciting education. Having high quality PE lessons throughout the school, we aim to provide the opportunity for pupils to develop and become confident, competent and enthusiastic individuals, who have the skills to participate and be sports leaders in extra-curricular activities. The School Sports Premium will be used to further enhance the PE and Sports provision at our two schools. The total funding for 2016-2017 will be confirmed shortly with our Finance Officer.  This will be spent as follows to realise the aims of the funding;

  • Employing a specialist Sports Coach who will work alongside our fulltime staff to up-skill lessons, improve quality of lessons and increase confidence in teaching PE.
  • Helping to promote pupils’ healthy lifestyles and physical well-being through providing a range of clubs for pupils and by ensuring active break and lunch-times can be enjoyed by all
  • Regularly attending inter-school competitions.
  • Releasing staff to take teams of children to the inter-school competitions.
  • Funding of transport to sporting events, activities and competitions
  • Providing staff with teaching resources to help teach PE and sport to the highest standards.
  • CPD activities
  • Attendance at cluster update events

Desired Impact 2016-2017

  • increase in the quality of PE teaching
  • improvements in pupils’ physical fitness and attitudes to healthier lifestyle choices
  • increase in pupil engagement with PE during school time
  • increase in pupil engagement with PE during school time
  • increase in pupil engagement with PE during extra curricular activities
  • increased the amount of competitive sport
  • greater accessibility for all to sporting activities
  • increased confidence in staff to deliver PE and sports activities
  • pand active lunch and break time experiences for all pupils

How we will monitor the impact of 2016-2017 funding: The school monitors both the physical development and engagement levels of pupils through:-

  • Teacher/sports coach observation and  assessment of PE
  • Pupil 100% attendance and maximum take-up at school sports clubs
  • Circle assembly and pupil voice
  • Participation and achievement in school sporting events
  • Improved attitudes, well-being and raised self esteem
  • Improved behaviour at lunch-time of pupils actively engaging in sport and active pastimes
  • Parent feedback
  • Celebration Assembly

The school will maximise opportunities for both in school and out of school sporting competitions. The results of the competitions will be shared via the website, Facebook & and the school newsletter.

Funding - Financial year 2016 to 2017

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, we will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years: £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6 and £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11.

Pupil Premium & Salhouse Primary School

The Pupil Premium is a grant allocated to schools in addition to the main school budget. It is awarded on the basis of the number of children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). The funding is seen by the Government as a way to address the current inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.  ‘Looked After Children’ face additional barriers to reaching their potential and so these children too will receive a premium.

‘It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools for FSM pupil, is spent, since they are the best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility’  (source: Department for Education website)

As you see schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see best. However, we are still held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures are included in performance tables that will capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium. From September 2012 schools have been required to publish on-line information about how we have used the Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium in 2016 – 2017

Our allocated Pupil Premium budget will be confirmed shortly by our Finance Officer. Funding is allocated for each financial year (April to March), which is different from the school year (September to July.

A proportion of the Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to;

  • Allow pupils access to in-school activities and extra-curricular learning activities which require funding.
  • Allow pupils access to out of school activities which require funding.
  • Provide transport to out of school activities.
  • Assist in the purchasing of school uniform.
  • Provide targeted intervention activities
  • Provide additional teaching support staff enabling smaller group teaching for:

Impact:

  • Disadvantaged KS2 pupils ‘progress was not significantly below average overall or for any prior attainment group in any subject and not below -3 in KS2 SATS in 2016
  • Disadvantaged KS2 pupils had an average scaled score equal to or above the national score for other pupils in reading in KS2 SATS in 2016

Disadvantaged pupils were working at age related expectations at the end of KS1 in 2016

Funding for the PE and sport premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding. In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2016 school census.

Funding for 2016 to 2017

  • Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil.
  • Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.
  • The breakdown of funding for the academic year 2016 to 2017, including conditions of grant, is available.

Uniform

Many of you have said you would like to see a more consistent uniform. As things wear out or become too small please can you replace them with the new uniform.

FOSS have worked very hard in support of the school organising the purchasing of uniform over many years. They have recently decided to hand it over to the Tesco Uniform Service. The service is a really easy way to get great value school uniforms in the school's colours complete with the school logo. Any purchases you make via the website help raise money for FOSS as Tesco donate a percentage of the sale to them for every uniform sold.

You can access the service here: www.tesco.com/direct/ues/ see below for more information about the uniform.
