The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

Early Years Pupil Premium
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.
Early years providers are any organisation offering education for children aged under 5, including nurseries and childminders.
The Government provides substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the “physical education” PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money. For example hire specialist “physical education” PE teachers, hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers, provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport, support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs or run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games.
Swimming analysis: For the past few years, all children across Key Stage 2 have swam weekly for at least 5 half terms out of 6 in the academic year. This year, all of KS2 will swim for the academic year to secure their skills and water proficiency, allowing them to develop confidence in the water in order to ensure that as many of our children as possible reach the required expectation to be able to “Swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.” (NB: COVID-19 impacted on this from March 2020.)
In 2018-19, 69% of our Year 6 children were able to attain this competency. This compares with 88% in 2017-18 and 44% in 2016-17. In 2018-19, 69% of our Year 6 children were also able to use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. This was at 88% in 2017-18.
For 2019-20, our swimming and water safety outcomes (up to March 2020 when lessons stopped) were:
|28%||of our Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of 25 metres when they left our primary school at the end of last academic year.|
|75%||of our Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively, 10 metres unaided (front crawl, back stroke, and breast stroke) when they left our primary school at the end of last academic year.|
|31%||of our Year 6 pupils could perform safe self rescue in different water-based situations when they left our primary school at the end of last academic year.|
|Yes||Schools can choose to use the primary PE and sports premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the National Curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?|
