Pupil Premium and PE and Sport's Premium grants


The government have made two additioanl funding streams available to school and this expenditire must be reported upon.

Pupil Premium funding is designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.

The Sport's Premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


Pupil Premium

"Additional funding is spent effectively to support disadvantaged pupils. Leaders know individual pupils well. They analyse carefully the type of support these pupils need in order to achieve as well as their peers. Typically, pupils eligible for the pupil premium start school with skills and understanding below those expected for their age. During their time at Earlsfield, the vast majority make rapid progress and achieve standards
that are at least broadly in line with other pupils nationally." (Ofsted 2017)

What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is an additional amount of money provided by the Government for those children who are entitled to receive FSM (free schools meals) or have received FSM in the past 6 years. www.education.gov.uk/schools/pupilsupport/premium.

The progress of all children is measured on a termly basis and discussions take place with relevant teachers. This enables us to discuss individuals in detail and pinpoint any area where additional support may be necessary.


Summary Statement
Pupil Premium children at Earlsfield make at least good and often outstanding progress by the time they leave the school with attainment often being comparable to Non Pupil Premium children nationally.
By the end of Key Stage 2 (2016)
A new method of assessment was introduced for the Summer of 2016. Earlsfield Pupil Premium Children performed broadly in line with all children nationally.
• Earlsfield Pupil Premium attainment in RWM was broadly in line with Non Pupil Premium Children nationally (1 child differential)
• Raiseonline shows that progress in reading and writing was significantly better than all children nationally and considerably better in maths.

By the end of Key Stage 2 (2017)

The performance of Pupil Premium children at Earlsfield was better than all children nationally at the expected standard. The gap to greater depth ranged between the attainment of 0 to1 child.

By the end of Key Stage 2 (2018)

Attainment of disadvantaged children at the expected standard was 14% above the national average for non disdvantaged children.

Pupil Premium children at Earlsfield made better than expected progress at the end of Key Stage 2

Reading 3.7  Writing 2.7  Maths 4.1


Over the course of the past three years the progress of disadvantaged children has been significantly above average in Reading, Writing and Maths.


The strategy is reviewed by The Governing Board in the Summer term of each academic year. Barriers for learning are identified and actions put in place. During the academic year 2018-2019 funding will be spent on removing the barriers to learning that our Pupil Premium children face which include :

  • Specific Special Educational Needs
  • Poor Attendance
  • Families with negative personal experiences of education
  • Emotional/social/behavioural difficulties which impact on pupils’ ability to focus on learning
  • Narrow life experiences
  • Lack of or limited home support
  • An unsettled home life
  • Low self-esteem and/or confidence
  • Lack of confidence in specific subject areas such as maths

PE and Sport's Premium

"The sport premium funding is used effectively. Leaders spend money on providing specialist coaches so pupils experience a wider range of sports." (Ofsted 2017)

What is the PE and Sport's Premium?
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

What is the purpose of the funding?
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this. A list of possible uses has been suggested.
