Additional Funding

Use of additional funding:

Primary PE & Sports Premium

The focus for the use of the Primary PE & Sport Premium is that pupils experience how to be as healthy and active as possible. Our learning difficulty school Cheshire provides opportunities for pupils to gain the knowledge, skills and motivation for healthy, active lifestyle with a wider interest in physical activity and sport’.

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

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.

Year 7 Catch Up

The Government made a commitment to provide additional funding to schools for each year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least level 4 in the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics.  The purpose of this funding is to enable additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support individually or within small groups, for those pupils that need it most.

Looked after Children- (LAC)

Children who are in care are one of the lowest performing groups in terms of educational outcomes. Identifying the relationships between care experiences and educational progress enables schools to better support their education and improve individual outcomes.
