The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment between certain disadvantaged groups of pupils and those who are more well off.
The funding is provided to schools, which decide how best to spend this according to local needs.
Our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement sets out details of our allocation and how it will be spent to directly impact on the barriers faced by eligible pupils. –

Sport Funding 2017-18
Developing an engaging and effective PE curriculum is important so we continue to fund training and development opportunities for our staff.
We continue to buy into the Burford PE Partnership to enable all our children to participate in PE festivals and tournaments throughout the year. During 2017-18 100% of our children in Y1-Y6 participated in a sporting tournament or festival.
We fund extra curricular workshops and activities to enrich the PE provision.
We promote active playtimes and provide a range of equipment to support children in enjoying being physically active.
All Key Stage Two children undertake at least 10 weeks swimming each year meaning most children can reach the expected outcomes for swimming at the end of Key Stage Two. In 2018 56% of the Y6 cohort could swim competently 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

Instead of replacing our Trim Trail, which is now deteriorating after many years of use, we are delighted to be able to use our sports funding to provide a more challenging climbing frame to support our children’s physical development.
