Pupil Premium and Sports Premium
Nationally there is a gap in the attainment of children who have free school meals and those who do not. In response to this the Department for Education provides additional funding for all schools to ensure that these children meet or exceed minimum age related expectations.
At Winford Church of England Primary School ensuring that all children reach their full potential is embedded in the school vision and our practice. We have been able to use this additional funding to further this and extend the size of our inclusion and support staff team.
Schools have been asked to communicate how they use their pupil premium so that the community is aware of the steps being taken to close the gap in attainment for those pupils.
The School Sports Premium Grant is additional allocated funding from the government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also used to improve the health and wellbeing of primary school pupils. Here at Winford Church of England Primary School the money is allocated across the school to ensure that children have access to a broad and balanced PE curriculum.
From EYFS to Year 6 this funding means that children get high quality PE lessons, access to specialist coaches, take part in competitive sport and other exercise (e.g. Forest skills days) as well as funding our healthy schools week.
