Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

This statement details our school’s use of pupil premium (and recovery premium for the 2021 to 2022 academic year) funding to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. It outlines our pupil premium strategy, how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year and the effect that last year’s spending of pupil premium had within our school.

Sports Premium

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, 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.

Through ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing money to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring fenced, and  allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Primary schools are able to determine what they believe to be the most appropriate use of this funding.

The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age the school has. The sport premium is to be used to  Increase the quality & breadth of PE & Sport provision, and increasing participation in PE & Sport.

At Benfieldside Primary School, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.
