Pupil and Sports Premium

Pupil Premium 

Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per eligible pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. We consider research evidence from organisations such as the Sutton Trust and the Education Endowment Foundation when we plan how to spend our Pupil Premium funding allocation.

In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for Free School Meals.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done.  The attached documents give information of how Pupil Premium money has been spent at Corby Primary Academy and the impact the funding has had.

This funding was used to raise teaching and pupil attainment throughout the school, increase pupil participation in sports and to promote exercise as part of healthy lifestyle that goes beyond school.
