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. – Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2016-17

Sport Funding 2016-17
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 2015-16 100% 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.
The school has a 10m x 6m outdoor swimming pool which is used fully during the summer term.
Through their PE passports last year Y6 children reported an improvement in how skilful there were in PE lessons. High percentages (89.5%) responded positively to the Healthy Active Lifestyle questions. Over the year children improved their understanding of how to improve their performance in PE and how they were assessed.
