Pupil premium and funding

Pupil Premium is additional money delegated to the academy and is matched to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals and who are 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 review for the most recently completed academic year and plans for spending this funding this year in the document below.

Sport Premium grant

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150m for physical education (PE) and sport. The Sport Premium grant funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. This funding is ring-fenced to be used for sport-specific areas, to make an impact in PE and sport in schools.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

The impact of the funding in 2019-2020 included:

  • Upskilling teachers and support staff through training and mentoring
  • Improved quality of taught PE sessions
  • Pupils more engaged with sports and healthy lifestyles
  • Opportunities provided to pupils to compete in inter-schools competitions
  • All class groups have their own lunchtime equipment

NOTE: some of the plans were curtailed by the Covid-19 outbreak and have been included in our onward plans

Our 2020-2021 plans for the funding

We will use the funding in the following areas:

  • Improved playground equipment
  • Investment in specialist PE support to teach lessons and support CPD of academy PE leader
  • Swimming lessons for year 4 children, and those in year 6 who could not attend due to the academy closure during 2019-20 academic year
  • Bikeability booked for pupils in years 3-6
  • Staff to lead after school and lunchtime clubs
  • Working towards the Bronze-level School Games mark
