The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to Free School Meals, those looked after by the Local Authority or adopted from Local Authority care and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.
At King’s Oak Primary School, Pupil Premium funding is used to create and enhance further learning experiences for pupils. Many activities are planned to support school improvement priorities. Activities are based on a thorough evaluation of what steps must next be taken to increase opportunity and maximise experiences for our pupils, so that they are ambitious for their future lives and develop the skills needed to ensure success.
At King’s Oak Primary School we are committed to ensuring that our children understand the importance of being active and having a healthy lifestyle. We aim to ensure that all pupils enjoy sports and games activities, increase their skills in all sports and have the opportunity to develop their talents outside school.
The Primary PE and Sports Grant will enable us to continue to extend our provision through employing more sports professionals, entering into more competitive sport competitions and by further training our staff to deliver a variety of in-house quality PE sessions and after school clubs.
