Pupil & Sports Premium

Pupil Premium strategy statement

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011 to provide additional funding to schools to support children from families that are or were eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. The funding is also given to looked after children, those that have been in care for more than six months, children adopted from care, those who left care under special guardianship, residents order or child arrangement order, and those whose parents are in the armed forces. The funding is made available to support schools to narrow the attainment gap between these children and others. National data shows that as a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM. It is up to schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, but this funding should be used to support these children.


Sports Premium 2020 – 2021

Physical Education is an integral part of teaching and learning at Perrymount Primary School. Pupils learn the importance of health and fitness, along with the importance of developing healthy & active lifestyles, through the core areas of Dance, Gymnastics and Games.   Outdoor and Adventurous Activity and Athletics are also taught.

All children receive a minimum of 2 hours of P.E. per week.

Swimming is a key feature in the PE curriculum, as it is also a life skill. 2 classes currently take part in swimming lessons annually.

The PE and Sport premium introduced by the government in 2013 (£150 million per year across all schools), is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils by providing additional funding. This funding (which is ring-fenced) is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is being allocated to primary schools across the country.

This premium, which was initially introduced for 3 years, has since been extended and increased due to the continuing need to raise the physical activity of children.

The additional premium has allowed the school to continue it’s involvement in the school sports partnership, which offers competitive sporting opportunities for all age groups.

While recognising the importance of competitive sport, the emphasis is placed on participation and ensuring that all children have access to a broad and balanced PE curriculum, so hopefully recognising the importance of of physical activity while  developing lifelong enjoyment of physical activity.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.
