What is Pupil Premium Funding?
Pupil Premium is additional funding that the Government gives to schools in England to help children from low income families. The Pupil Premium Grant must be spent to help pupils reach their full potential. This is for both academic and social/emotional support. The school decides how best to spend the funding using the latest research.
The below links detail the pupil premium expenditure of Kirton Lane Primary School for this and the previous academic year:
Pupil premium is allocated to pupils from low income families. The eligibility check is the same as the Free School Meals eligibility check. If you think your child may be entitled to Pupil Premium Funding, please contact the school office and we can check for you.
What is Sports Premium Funding?
Sports Premium is funding provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS).
The Premium is designed to help children get an active start in life, supporting primary schools to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision so that pupils experience the benefits of regular exercise – from becoming healthier both mentally and physically to improved behaviour and better academic achievement.
