Pupil premium and funding

Pupil Premium is additional money delegated to the academy and is matched to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals and who are children of service families. At Bracken Lane Primary Academy we use our funding for a range of purposes suited to the individual needs of our children.

Please see our spending review for the most recently completed academic year and plans for spending this funding this year in the document below.

Sport Premium grant

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150m for physical education (PE) and sport. The Sport Premium grant funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. This funding is ring-fenced to be used for sport-specific areas, to make an impact in PE and sport in schools.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

2019-2020 plans for the funding

We will use the funding in the following areas:

  • employing additional support for teachers to develop their teaching skills in PE lessons, expert sports coaches will be team teaching and modelling lessons for the teachers
  • PE leader to monitor progress in PE
  • to promote healthy active lifestyles at play times and lunch times
  • targeting children in years 5 and 6 who do not yet meet the 25m swimming award
  • purchase new sports equipment for use during PE lessons, lunchtimes and play times
