Pupil Premium and PE & Sport Premium
The Pupil Premium is part of our overall budget that we receive annually. We are required to account specifically about how we use this fund. It is allocated based on the number of children meeting a national criteria based on the Ever 6 Measure. That includes the total number of:
- Pupils eligible for fee school meals – within the last 6 years
- Children looked after
- Service children
We use our funding to precisely target specific teaching and learning programmes or related activities. All our pedagogy and practice is research based with strong evidence of having impact here at Coleraine Park during 2012-13 or prior to that, in schools nationally or internationally.
We are committed to ensuring that all our pupils progress very well and access high quality teaching and provision - every day. We carefully track the progress of all children, at least every six weeks, including our disadvantaged pupils in every class. The information is shared with all parents and carers via our half term reports detailing pupil progress and attainment. Tracking also enables us to evaluate the impact of our teaching and intervention programmes so we can adjust provision and tailor support. That way, we can make sure we are having the desired impact on pupils’ learning and progress.
PE & Sport Premium
In 2014-2015 we received £9,650.00 of PE & Sport Premium funding which was used to provided specialist PE teaching. All children in the academy received weekly or twice weekly PE lessons by a specialist PE teacher. This enabled children to cover all aspects of the PE national curriculum ensuring the development of a broad range of skills, using them in different ways and linking them to make actions and sequences of movement. In 2015- 2016 we received £9,160.00 of PE & Sport Premium funding and has been used in the same way as the previous year. The impact of this funding has been a greater sense of enjoyment of PE in school, an increase in the take-up of sport-related clubs after school, more children able to take part in inter-LA tournaments and achieving a higher ranking in the Harris Federation Primary Sports Day!
