Leigh St Peter's
C.E. Primary School
Our school has access to a range of additional funding streams from the government.
PUPIL PREMIUM AND CATCH UP PREMIUM:
From April 2011 the Government introduced “The Pupil Premium Grant”. Schools receive this allocation in addition to their School Budget.
The Grant is allocated to maintained schools via their Local Authority, to help ensure pupils reach their full potential both academically and socially.
Funds are currently allocated using figures obtained from the October Census as follows :
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit.
We know that we have the professional knowledge and expertise in the education system to ensure that children and young people recover and get back on track. Returning to normal educational routines as quickly as possible will be critical to our national recovery.
The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.
PE AND SPORT PREMIUM:
The purpose of the PE and Sport Premium is to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
As a prerequisite for receiving this funding, there are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school
2. The profile of PESSPA (Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity) being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
5. Increased participation in competitive sport
