The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. Informing school about your child’s free school meal status is extremely important as it attracts extra funding to support their learning in school.
You can view or download our Pupil Premium allocation and rationale to find out how this has been used at our school. This will be next updated in March.

Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil. 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. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
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 Greenland Community 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. Below is a breakdown of how the funding has been spent:
