Pupil Premium and Sports Premium

Pupil Premium

Introduced in 2011, Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools, each year, by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.  The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.


We receive PPG for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals or who has been entitled to over the last six years, and for any ‘Looked After Children’.  If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, they will receive Universal Free School Meals.  You can still apply for PPG as this will enable the school to provide  additional support for your child, now and for the following 6 years of their education in school.  We publish online information about how we have used the premium, you can access this through the links below.
We aim for every single one of our pupil premium funded children to reach at least national expectations and have made expected progress over their time in primary school.  We also want the attendance of our pupil premium funded children to be at least inline with all pupils.
We have largely targeted our additional pupil premium funding on:

  • Ensuring we provide first rate quality teaching
  • Targeted intervention where necessary
  • Pastoral care
  • Enriching experiences


If you think that you may be eligible for Pupil Premium, please see the letter below.  the team in the office can also answer any questions you may have.  Our number is 01934 852446.

PE and sport premium for primary schools 


The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money. Schools receiving PE and sports premium funding must publish details of the way in which PE and sports premium funding is spent. 


At Churchill Primary School, we believe in the importance of encouraging pupils to lead a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils. However, we acknowledge our responsibility for providing high-quality learning for all children and we are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs in order to enable them to become the best they can be in sport. 


Sport Premium funding is vital to this process and we approach it through the following principles:  

  •  ensuring that ‘Quality First’ teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils;  
  • ensuring that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, including ensuring the needs of pupils are adequately assessed and addressed;  
  •  allocating the funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified;  
  • ensuring the progress of pupils is rigorously monitored and reviewed as part of the school’s assessment cycle;  
  • linking performance management and whole school development targets to the achievement of these groups of pupils;
