Pupil Premium & Sports Premium

What is the 'Pupil Premium'?

The Pupil Premium is an additional amount of money given to schools, on top of their main budget. Every school receives a fixed amount of money per pupil for all pupils meeting certain criteria. Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM), those looked after by the local authority for at least 6 months, those who have been eligible for free school meals, at any given point, within the last 6 years and children of armed service personnel.

The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment. Many eligible children will not need additional support. The school adopts the same approach with eligible children as with any other child found to be at risk of falling behind.

It is for schools to 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. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils, and from September 2012 schools were required to publish online information about how they have used the funding.

At Oak Hill CE Primary School we work closely with parents and carers to understand each child fully and put in place additional provision when needed which is appropriate and effective.

All Pupil Premium children had full access and engagement with the full range of clubs, trips and visits as their peers thanks to the support of the Pupil Premium.  Additional adult support allowed them also to receive some additional support in school with their emotional and social needs.  

More information about Oak Hill's previous and intended spending of Pupil Premium funds can be found in the reports below or by visiting our Expenditure Reports.

Sports Premium 

PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
 
Our sports funding grant is used to great effect to provide a high quality of PE provision in school. The attached report outlines the key areas that we use the funding for and the impact that this is having.
