Pupil Premium & Sports Funding
What is Pupil premium Funding?
Pupil premium is additional funding given to schools to raise attainment of pupils eligible for free school meals (or those that have been eligible within the last 6 years). It was first introduced in April 2011. Since then the amount schools receive has increased and schools must carefully plan, monitor and evaluate how this money is allocated.
How is funding allocated to schools?
The money is allocated by the number of eligible children in school. The school receives £1300 per child for every child that is in eligible for free school meals or has been in the last 6 years. Further funding of £1900 is allocated for every Looked After Child. Click the links below to see our Plans and Reviews.
What is the Sports Premium Funding?
Sports Premium funding is money allocated to school to improve the health, wellbeing and academic achievement of children through sports and activities. Sport is an important part of our curriculum and extra curriculum provision at Beaconside. We aim to deliver high quality Physical Education teaching and a wide and varied range of sports and activities for children after school.
How is Funding allocated to schools?
Each school receives a lump sum and money per pupil. For 2017 - 18 this is £8000 plus an additional £5 per pupil. This means Beaconside receives around £10,000 to support to spend on PE and Sport provision. Click the link below to see our spending plan for 2017 - 18
