Pupil Premium & Sports funding
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that we can support our disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. We receive £900 for each pupil who is registered as having Free School Meals.
To see what we do with our money, please see the attachments to the bottom of the page.
PE and Sport Premium Funding
Auriol Junior School receives the PE and Sport Premium Funding for 2017 to 2018. As a school with 17 or more eligible pupils, Auriol will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
As outlined on gov.uk, schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.
This means that you should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
- the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- increased participation in competitive sport
