St George's Church of England Primary School

How we spend our Grants

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 between them and their peers.

In the 2023 to 2024 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,455 for primary-aged pupils

Schools will continue to receive £2,345 for each child who: 

  • has been looked after for 1 day or more;
  • has been adopted from care;
  • has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order.

Please refer to the documents below to understand how St George's allocates the Pupil Premium.

PE Grant & Sports Premium

 What is the Sports Premium?

The Government since 2013 has dedicated funding to develop sports in schools. This funding to schools is 'ring fenced' which means it can only be used to improve the provision of PE and Sport as well as enhancing healthy lifestyles in either curricular or extra-curricular settings. How schools decide to undertake this task remains the decision of the primary school themselves.

St George's CE Primary School is complying with the guidance and issues an Impact Spreadsheet which shows how the funding is being used to impact upon the development of Sport and PE. This will further your child's enjoyment, acquisition of skills, understanding and general development in Sport and PE.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 Key indicators:

1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and healthy lifestyles.
2. The profile of PE and Sport being raised across the school.
3. Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport.
4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities.
5. Increased participation in competitive sports.
