Pupil and Sports Premiums

Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

What is Pupil Premium?


Pupil premium is additional money allocated to schools over and above the main school budget. For each child who is eligible for a Free School Meal (FSM), or have been in the last 6 years, Looked After Children and children whose parents are in the armed forces, a set allocation of money is given to schools. The rationale is as follows:


“The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.


It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be.”


As recommended by the Department for Education (DfE), the Pupil Premium Strategy is a three year plan, with evaluations added at the end of the third year.

Sports Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

The ‘Sports Premium’ is allocated from the Government and it is used to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.  This funding is allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to purchase in invaluable expertise and support.


It is the Wyberton way and belief that the Premium sports funding should help the school develop sustainable links with sports and health clubs/agencies. It is important children will be able to access extracurricular clubs to increase their levels of participation and enjoyment in sports and have opportunities to experience and gain a taster of alternative sports, not necessarily on the school curriculum. We are endeavouring to provide high quality continued professional development training opportunities to further develop our staff and ensure that we raise standards of teaching and learning in P.E through the links with local secondary schools and outside clubs and agencies. We are also looking to use the funding to help raise the pupils and parents awareness of healthy lifestyles.
