The Bythams SchoolPupil Premium and Sports Funding

Pupil premium

At Bythams we support all our children. We do this by providing high quality teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners when needed. The impact of this high quality teaching and intervention work for each child is then monitored through termly pupil progress meetings.

The Government introduced a Pupil Premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally. The Government requires us report to you on how our Pupil Premium has been spent.

Sports Funding

All primary schools are now in receipt of £16,000 per year (a payment of £10 per pupil) for Sports Premium. Our commitment to sport and activity is to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to be involved in a range of sports and different activities that promote health and well-being.

At Bythams we are delighted to have been informed that the Sports Premium has been guaranteed now until 2020 meaning we can expand our sports and health opportunities for an extended period of time and provide our pupils with continued opportunities for the foreseeable future.

How we use the Sports Funding

This funding allows us to spend our Sports Premium money on effectively encouraging sport and leadership through a range of different incentives for staff and pupils. This includes coaching, staff and pupil training, parental training and involvement, gifted and talented and low self-esteem workshops and a range of opportunities for pupil development in sports leadership.

The funding has been used in the following ways:
