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. –Bampton CE Primary School Pupil premium strategy statement September 2022
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.
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 5 weeks swimming each year meaning most children can reach the expected outcomes for swimming at the end of Key Stage Two.
Details of how we intend to use our Sports Premium for the academic year 2023-24:

Catch Up Funding –
Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils’ education recovery.
While schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed learning. Schools should particularly focus on disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils as we know they have been most affected.
