Pupil Premium & Sports Premium

Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium Statement
Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools by the government. It is allocated to children who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Service Children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This will also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure)

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school, but it is used to ensure all FSM children are supported in making good academic progress every school year.

We are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium.
Our allocation for Pupil Premium 2021-2022 was £63,110
The actual spending on pupil premium is £63,770.

Sports Premium

At Chantlers Primary School, we believe that developing children’s physical literacy gives them the tools for lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Children’s early experiences with sports are crucial to the development of high levels of expertise. Physical literacy is promoted and developed through a combination of school-based physical education, as well as other structured activity programs run out of school hours. 

The Sports Premium funding has had a direct impact on the Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural aspects of our Curriculum. Children are challenged in their PE lessons and develop confidence and self-esteem. We promote British Values by placing an emphasis on the need to work together as a team, regardless of ability. Additionally, this impacts pupils' physical and mental health and wellbeing. 

This year, we will be receiving £18,090 to spend purely on our PE provision within our school. 

Of our Year 6 pupils, 22 are able to swim confidently and proficiently over a 25-metre distance and 17 are able to use a range of strokes and perform a safe self-rescue. Those who have yet to achieve those milestones will attend swimming lessons during the new school year.

Please read the below information which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

What is Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide Primary Schools with Sports Funding. The money will go directly to primary schools in order to improve sport and PE. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers.

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Implementing Change4Life clubs within the school
  • Providing new sports clubs which offer new challenges for all children
  • Providing CPD opportunities for all members of staff in school
  • Increasing participation in school games
  • Providing resources for PE and Sport
  • To involve all children in PE and Sport through inclusion support
  • Introduction of intervention groups for PE to support children working at different levels within the curriculum

At the end of the 2020 academic year, the impact will be measured through:

• Specialists sports coaches and class teachers will have worked with a wide range of pupils and assessment data will demonstrate effect with enhanced levels of progress. Some assessment data provided by the coaches to further enhance tracking and progress.

• Matrix of seasonal sporting activities drawn up with all staff offering at least one sporting based activity throughout the year. Registers of such clubs to be kept and monitored. Extra-curricular matrix was drawn up and maintained throughout the year enabling all-year-round access to activities.

• Staff to attend localised (and national) inset courses to enhance their own professional development as and when they arise and if channelled towards enhancements and enrichment of the school‘s provision coupled with staff PFM.
• Networks meetings attended by the PE lead will be focused on arranging inter-school events and training opportunities – resulting in increased participation in competitive sports.

• PE lead to maintain high levels of curriculum resources to enhance the delivery of PE across the school resulting in improved quality of teaching.

• Activity leaders will work with pupils of all ages at lunchtimes on the seasonal roll out of activities. All pupils throughout the school will experience the sessions.

Curriculum focus of sports money spending for 2019 / 2020

This year, we have £18,090. We intend to spend the money on the following things: 

• The use of subject-specific coaches/teachers to enhance the learning opportunity for pupils. Class teachers and sports coaches work with pupils across the school to provide pupils with the highest quality experience and provision in order to enhance their learning opportunity.

• Matrix of seasonal sporting activities to be formulated in order for a wider range of pupils to experience competitive sport. Pupils to compete in inter and intra competitions in order for them to experience a wider range of competitive sporting environments - all associated transport costs for staff will be met.

• Staff to attend localised (and national) inset courses to enhance their own professional development. Training to be lead on and off-site as and when required to enable the school to enrich its learning opportunities for pupils whilst enhancing the skill set of the staff.

• Links within the network used as a basis for accruing evidence required for the School Games accreditation award as stipulated within the Ofsted guidance for Sports premium spend.
• Buying quality assured materials and equipment for P.E. and sport.
• Offering further opportunities for pupils through lunchtime and after school sports clubs to experience a wider range of diverse sports and games experiences.
