Sports and pupil premiums are additional funding allocated to schools by the Government to either support specific groups of children or to improve the quality of sport and PE for all children. Specific information on the amount of funding received, how it has been used and the effect this has had on the children of the school can be found under the relevant sections.
Pupil Premium (PP) is a specific funding stream that is targeted at pupils from deprived backgrounds who are likely, according to National data, to underachieve. The Government has defined these children as being Free School Means (FSM), Service children and Looked After Children (LAC).
