The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to help schools which must be used to support children from low income and other disadvantaged families. This is because national statistical evidence shows that it is these children which form the majority of those pupils who may not succeed in education and whose adult life chances may then be seriously affected.
Pupil Premium funding is primarily aimed at children who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). This includes any child who has been registered for FSM in the past 6 years. Funding also covers children in care who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, while a smaller “Service Premium” has also been introduced for children whose parents are serving with the armed forces.
Pupil eligibility and funding rates
This table shows how much pupil premium funding schools and local authorities receive for each eligible child.
|Pupil eligibility criteria||Amount of funding for each primary-aged pupil per year||Amount of funding for each secondary-aged pupil per year||Funding is paid to|
|Pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past 6 years||£1455||£1035||School|
|Pupils who have been adopted from care or have left care||£2530||£2530||School|
|Children who are looked after by the local authority||£2530||£2530||Local authority|
How the pupil premium will be spent
- Evidence based CPD (Continuing Professional Development) to improve Quality of Teaching
- To engage in evidence based academic interventions (Maths & English) for identified pupils, who are falling behind their peers
- To subsidise access to extra-curricular enrichment activities such as residentials, clubs and trips to promote engagement and self-esteem. This also includes a number of curriculum enrichment days across each academic year.
- To ensure that all children foster a love of Reading at Nettlesworth Primary School
- To engage in social and emotional interventions, e.g. Therapeutic interventions, counselling, social and emotional support
How its impact will be measured
- Baseline, termly and end of year assessments will identify progress
- Eligible children will access positive educational experiences and enrichment opportunities to promote engagement and self-esteem
- Review and analysis of interventions
- School and governor monitoring, e.g. book scrutines, observations of teaching, pupil surveys and discussions, learning walks, etc.

Since September 2013, the government has provided additional funding of £160 million per annum to improve PE and School Sport (PESS) provision in all primary schools across England. From the 2018-19 academic year, it was agreed as part of the Childhood obesity strategy that funding would double to £320 million per annum to further support schools across the country. Following the General Election, the government has further committed to this funding scheme until 2020 which has now been extended until 2025. This funding – provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary head teachers and can only be spent on sustainable provision for PE and School Sport.
Schools had until the end of the 2020/21 academic year to spend any funding carried forward from 2019/20, that they couldn’t use due to coronavirus (previously you had to spend it by the end of March).
Our PE and sport premium spending plans for 2020/21 reflect this change.
The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means they should use the premium to:
- Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers.
- Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
Each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per child in year 1-6 each year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
Purpose of the Funding
All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Nettlesworth Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well- being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
Sport and PE at Nettlesworth Primary School
In order to create sustainable, enjoyable and competitive sport within our school we offer a wide variety of sports, competitions and after school clubs which are accessible by all. We have a long term plan from EYFS to Year 6 with planning and assessment resources to inform future teaching and planning. The coverage and opportunities offered to all learners are carefully planned to fit in with all intra-school and inter-school competitions. We have a traditional sports day every year and enter teams into: football, cross country, hockey, rugby and athletic competitions to name but a few. After school clubs include: multi-skills, dance, and mini sports. We have established excellent relationships with many local sports clubs including Sacriston and Chester-le-Street Cricket Club, Durham University, Durham and Chester-le-Street Athletics, Infinite Air Trampolining and Durham Climbing Centre.

Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All Local Authority schools mustprovide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.
The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
It is important that our children understand the dangers of cold water shock and swimming in rivers.
Please take time to watch the below link to help keep children safe.
At Nettlesworth Primary School we typically start water confidence lessons in Year 3/4. This continues into Year 5 and Year 6. Those pupils who have not reached the 25m expectation will continue to swim in Year 5/6. Pupils in Year 6 are then given the opportunity, after SAT tests in May, to consolidate the skills above to ensure they leave school able to swim the 25m.
Results for pupils in Year 6 the end of 2022 – 2023: –
- 61% could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres (56% of our Year 5 pupils were operating at this level)
- 61% could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] (53% of our Year 5 pupils were operating at this level)
- 67% perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations (61% of our Year 5 pupils were operating at this level)
Results for pupils in Year 6 the end of 2021 – 2022: –

- 58% could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] (47% of our Year 5 pupils were operating at this level)
- 64% perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations (59% of our Year 5 pupils were operating at this level)
Results for pupils in Year 6 the end of 2020 – 2021: –
- 83% could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- 75% could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
- 75% perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
Results for pupils in Year 6 the end of 2019-2020:-
Attainment data for this cohort is provided from their most recent swimming lessons, which were in Summer Term 2019. We were unable to give the Year 6 Summer Term 2020 lessons to consolidate the skills above due to the current times of COVID, closure of schools and swimming facilities. Year 5 data is provided from most recent swimming lessons in Summer Term 2019 and Year 3/4 data is provided from most recent swimming lessons in March 2020 before COVID pandemic and closure.
- 55.5% could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres (62.5% of our Year 5 pupils, 58.8% of our Year 4 pupils and 52.9% of our Year 3 pupils were operating at this level)
- 44.4% could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] (56.25% of our Year 5 pupils, 41.2% of our Year 4 pupils and 52.9% of our Year 3 pupils were operating at this level)
- 44.4% perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations (62.5 % of our Year 5 pupils, 58.8% of our Year 4 pupils and 52.9% of our Year 3 pupils were operating at this level,
At Nettlesworth Primary School we do not use any primary PE and sport premium to provide additional provision for swimming.
