Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap betwen them and their peers. It it allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked After Children (LAC), children adopted from care and Services Forces children. It also include pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as ever 6 FSM measure).

Funding for 2019/20 is £1,320 for FSM children, £300 for service children and £2.300 for LAC.

Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families. Schools are required to report this information.

We are ambitious for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passions and thirst for knowledge, ad your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. We use the pupil premium funds to support our children to achieve well.

If you think your child may be eligible to receive this additional funding and support but are not sure whether the school are aware of this, please speak in confidence to the staff in the school office.

PE Grant

The government is providing funding to support primary school sport development. The funding is jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport. It will see  money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E.  Here at St Leonard’s we will receive £17,760 in 2018/19. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Schools will spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Examples include additional sport clubs, equipment to support P.E and hiring specialist P.E teachers/qualified sport coaches.

At St Leonard’s we recognise the contribution of P.E to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
