It is particularly aimed at pupils coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, who may also be in receipt of free school meals or in care but it's use may benefit all children in school. There is also funding given to children belonging to service families, known as Service Premium.

The funding is added to the planned expenditure already in place to meet the needs of identified children in school, in order for them to make good to outstanding progress in their learning.

Whole School Football Festival - 12th March 2020

The whole school had a brilliant day with Ross from Goal Getters.  Every class had a session with Ross.  The children took part in a range of activities which worked on their aim, coordination, teamwork, balance and agility.  The children all really enjoyed the sessions comments included,

"It was brilliant!"                      "Football is the best."                  "Can we do it again?"

Year 1 and 2 Netball Festival - 29th January 2020

 The Year 1 and 2 children enjoyed a brilliant morning with Miss Sloman and Miss Nicholls from Primary Sports.  They worked on key netball skills such as:

  • footwork and agility
  • passing and catching

This was a great way to finish their netball skills learning from the Autumn term.

Tarka Tennis Festival - 19th June 2019

We had a fantastic morning at Tarka Tennis with the whole school for our annual Tarka Tennis Festival.  The children worked on their forehand, backhand, rackets skills, ball skills and took part in relay races.  Their behaviour was excellent and it was clear to see, from the improvement in their skills, that the children have worked really hard in PE this year.
