The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after by the local authority continuously for more than six months. In 2012-2013 this funding was extended to also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the ever 6 FSM measure).

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families. From September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we are using the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the Premium and the extra support that pupils receive.

Funding for schools was calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) at the annual census in January.  All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils received a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.  Schools will be held to account for how they spend the sport funding. 

At Boxgrove we believe that Physical Education (PE) and Sport is an essential part of a child’s educational development.  We aim to develop a balanced progamme, both during and out of school hours, offering a variety of activities to enhance skills in PE and Sport.  Positive participation in PE will enable children to build, improve self-esteem, team work and positive attitudes to PE.
