Pupil Premium and PE/Sports Premium
Pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium funding make good and often outstanding progress.
PE & Sports Premium Report 2020/21
The pupil premium is allocated to schools in respect of children from low income families who are currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This applies to mainstream and non mainstream settings. Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit to 'close the gap' between children from disadvantaged circumstances and those above the low-income threshold - it is not linked to a specific child, but it is used for overall impact. However, we are held accountable for how we use the additional funding to support children from low income families.
In the 2021/22 financial year schools will receive £1345 for each primary school child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years and children of armed service personnel. Schools also receive £2345 for each child looked after by the local authority or post looked after children.
Schools can choose how they spend their pupil premium money as they are best placed to identify what would be of the most benefit to the children who are eligible.
Pupil Premium spending decisions have been reached by an analysis of pupil outcome data and termly monitoring of the impact of interventions and specific programmes. This enables us to maximise the achievements for our children. The next Pupil Premium Strategy review is July 2022.
Pupil premium in the 2021 to 2022 academic year
As in previous years, school will continue to use the pupil premium to improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. The disproportionately high impact of COVID-19 on the education of disadvantaged pupils makes this more important than ever. For 2021-2022, school is required to:
- use our recovery premium alongside our pupil premium funding and report on our use of them in our strategy statement
- use the template provided for by the Government to publish our strategy statement
- publish our strategy statement by 31st December 2021
Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021-23
For 2021, a new template has been introduced by the government that is to be in place for December 2021. Included with our actions taken from the previous year and outcomes of actions. Documentation used in the previous year is attached to this page.

PE and Sports Premium
The government is spending £450 million to help primary schools to improve the quality and breadth of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils.
At Summerville we believe that sport and PE are extremely important to the physical and emotional health and well being of our children. We are dedicated to raising standards in PE and ensuring our children are becoming more active and engaged in sports. We strongly feel that a fun, varied and competitive PE curriculum and extra curricular sporting activities have a positive influence on all our children and provide a great start for an active and healthy future.
For the year 2021/22 we have been allocated £18023 to spend on improving our PE provision. We want to ensure that our spending develops staff expertise in the teaching of PE and is sustainable. We are using this funding in the following ways:
- Fund a PE coach to support staff in the delivery of outstanding PE lessons
- Subsidise before and after school sports clubs
- Purchase new PE equipment
- Fund transport to out of school competitions
- Provide opportunities for children to participate in a diverse range of sporting activities
