Pupil & Sports Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil premium funding is available to:

  • local authority maintained schools, including special schools and pupil referral units (PRUs)
  • voluntary-sector alternative provision (AP), with local authority agreement
  • special schools not maintained by the local authority (NMSS)
  • academies and free schools, including special and AP academies

Primary, Physical Sports Education Premium

The PE and sport premium funding is allocated by the Government and is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.



Swimming at Park Lane

Our children swim between Years 2 and 4, and if they cannot swim confidently then we continue to take them. This is paid for through a voluntary contribution from Parents/Carers; almost everyone pays the full amount. We are really grateful for the support from Parents/Carers, as swimming is an important life skill and it is vital that all children get this opportunity.
