WestKidlington Primary School and Nurseryreceives the pupilpremiumand sportpremiumfrom the government.This funding is granted to the school in order to support thosechildren who are entitled to free school meals or who in the last sixyears have had entitlement to free school meals. Here is the outlayof the pupil and sport premium spending for our school, together withthe impact we feel it will have on the children.
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.
