Pupil Premium Information
The Pupil premium is a sum of money the school receives for each student who is either in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or who has been in receipt of them in the past. Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this money is to try to close that attainment gap by allowing the school to direct additional resources towards these individuals learning.
For the financial year 2018-19 Thompson Primary School has been allocated £21,140 Pupil Premium funding. Primary schools receive £1,320 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. Primary Schools receive £1900 for children who are Looked After and £300 for Forces’ children.
This year (2018-19) at present we have 22 children accessing Pupil Premium funding, including Ever 6 funding and Forces.
Planning for the funding includes:
- Targeted interventions with TA support
- Financial support with extra-curricular activities as needed
- One to one intervention through third space
- Resources to support learning and development
PE and Sports Premium Information
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. At Thompson Primary School we want every child to succeed irrespective of their background. We want to increase the number of pupils who derive pleasure from sporting activity in and out of school. We want to provide the best equipment to support high quality competitive sport and other games. We want to make the playground a place where sport can be enjoyed by all.
We are required to publish how much PE and Sports Premium money we receive and how we have chosen to spend that money.
