Pupil Premium is additional money given to the academy from the Government, matched to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals, as well as children of service families.
At Wainwright Primary Academy we use our funding for a range of purposes, suited to the individual needs of our children.
Please see our spending reviews for the previous two academic years, as well as plans for this year in the documents below.

All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.
The PE and sport premium can help primary schools to achieve this aim, providing primary schools with £320m of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils.
