Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Initially introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium grant is designed to address inequality by giving every school and teacher the resources they need to help their most disadvantaged pupils, allowing them the freedom to respond appropriately to individual circumstances.
The purpose of the Pupil Premium Grant is to provide funding in order to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and “close the gap” with their peers.
Eligibility for the pupil premium grant for 2015 to 2016 include pupils who have received free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous 6 years and those first known to be eligible at January 2015. It is also aimed at children who were looked after or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order, collectively referred to as post-LAC, and at children who were eligible for the service child premium in any of the previous 4 years or currently, according to the school census data.

At Perivale Primary School, the grant is spent in a variety of ways. The range of provision includes:

Facilitating pupils’ access to education
Facilitating pupils’ access to broader curriculum opportunities
Additional teaching and learning opportunities
Alternative support and intervention

Sports Funding


At Perivale, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and wellbeing of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide, ‘new and substantial primary school sport funding’. This funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Department for Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. The sport funding will be ‘ring-fenced’ so can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


To ensure children have opportunities to:

Lead healthy lifestyles
Enjoy Physical Education and Sport in school
Experience high quality Physical Education and Sport
Compete against their peers
Achieve sporting excellence

Purpose of Funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding include:

Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE

  • New or additional sports clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/ sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/ sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/ sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs

Our PE Curriculum

A wide range of PE is delivered to the children, which aims to engage and inspire all. Sports taught are wide and varied, both during the day, and as extra-curricular clubs. Opportunities include:

  • Gymnastics
  • Striking and Fielding Games
  • Net/Wall Games
  • Invasion Games
  • Dance
  • Athletics

In addition, funds are used to employ Sports Coaches and this expertise is used to teach children from Year 4 – Year 6. The coaches are also deployed to work alongside our Lunchtime Staff to deliver an engaging project, ensuring access to a wide range of sporting activities during lunchtime.
As well as regular PE lessons, we also provide team competitions both in-house and inter-school.
The school is keen to provide a wide range of extra-curricular clubs for children throughout the year. The children enjoy the opportunity to work with coaches and have the chance to try new sports. We monitor participation and check uptake against gender, SEN, FSM.
