Pupil Premium & PE and Sports Premium for schools

Pupil Premium Statement

Pupil Premium is a Government initiative, which provides additional funding aimed at children from deprived backgrounds. Research clearly shows established links between deprivation and educational underachievement, with the grant enabling schools to support these children in overcoming any barriers they may have in successfully engaging with their education. The Pupil Premium is provided in order to support these children to reach their full potential by accelerating their progress and providing them with experiences which may not normally be available to them. Pupil Premium also applies to those children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. Our Pupil Premium policy provides further information.


Pupil Premium Impact

At Lapworth C of E Primary School we are committed to meeting the pastoral, social and academic needs of children recognised as 'disadvantaged' and ensuring all children are supported to reach their full potential. We aim to ensure that every child leaves Lapworth fully prepared to meet the challenges in their future and with the determination and resilience to succeed. Therefore all our staff and governors carefully track the progress of our 'Pupil Premium funded' children and ensure that money is used effectively to impact on their learning.

The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.

See below for our policy and strategy statement.

Catch Up Premium

 All schools have been given a funding to support catch up of learning that may have been impacted due to the National lockdown in 2020. Below is a report which highlights how we at Lapworth school intend to target this funding.

Primary School PE and Sport Funding

The government provides additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is allocated directly to primary schools to achieve the Department for Education’s vision for Primary PE and Sport Premium that:


ALL pupils leaving primary school will be physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical education and sport.


This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.


Purpose of funding

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.


It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity- kick starting healthy active lifestyles.
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport.
