Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium is allocated by local authorities, or the DFE, to schools and academies with pupils between Reception and Year 11. The grant per eligible pupil for the current financial year is £1320 in primary schools, with £1900 for looked-after and adopted children (Pupil Premium Plus). Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to their underlying budget, in a way they think will best support raising the achievement of disadvantaged pupils in comparison with their non-disadvantaged peers within the school and nationally, whatever their academic starting point and potential. As well as receiving extra funding for Pupil Premium, children also receive a free school meal (FSM).

We will use the Pupil Premium funding received by the school to deliver our overall vision to those pupils who receive it and the wider school community where possible.

Please be aware that since September 2014 all children from the start of Reception to the end of Year 2 receive free school meals (FSM). This means the school will only receive £1320 for children in these year groups if parents apply for the Pupil Premium funding. Please come in and collect a Pupil Premium application form if you think your child might be eligible.

Proposed spend of Pupil Premium 2015/16

This document details the proposed spend of the Pupil Premium 2015/16, committed to narrowing the attainment and progress gap.

Our Pupil Premium grant for 2015/16 is £34,000.

Our Pupil Premium Plus grant is £7,600.

Key objectives:

1. Curriculum: to develop further the range of intervention strategies in use to ensure Pupil Premium students in all years make progress in line with or exceeding the progress of their non-Pupil Premium peers.

2. Wider Outcomes: to provide a range of opportunities for students, no matter what their background to access learning opportunities outside the classroom.

In the 2014/15 academic year, 100% of disadvantaged pupils achieved expected progress at the end of KS2. The percentage of children achieving more than expected progress was above the national figure in Reading and Maths.

Sports Premium Funding

Sports Premium at Outwood Primary Academy Kirkhamgate

Following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Government has made a commitment to invest over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16. Schools and academies determine how best to spend their allocation.

We have decided to spend our allocation as outlined in the action plan below.

Throughout the year, we review the impact the Sport Premium Finding is having. At the bottom of the Sport Premium Action Plan for this coming year, there is an outline of the impact last year's allocation and school development work had.
