Sports & Pupil Premium

PE and Sport Premium

The Government invest £320m per year directly into primary schools with the objective of achieving self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport. There is a long term vision that all pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Key performance indicators for schools are:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged five to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding was initially launched in 2011-12 by the then coalition government & is money is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).

At Totley All Saints, we are completely committed to the ideal of ‘every child matters’ and are driven by our values that focus on enhancing pupil achievement & wellbeing irrespective of their personal circumstances. In short, we want ALL of our children to do well and to thrive in their learning!

We seek to meet the needs of all of our pupils from through careful analysis of progress data on a termly basis and design intervention strategies where necessary to meet each pupil’s needs. Whilst our school has traditionally received a low amount, Pupil Premium funding gives a method of further supporting some of our more disadvantaged pupils in order that we can ‘close the gap’ & ensure that they get the very best advantage from their time with us.

This year, our Pupil Premium allocation for 2022-23 is £33,018

  • The outcomes of FSM pupils vary at different times depending on the children & their individual needs. Sometimes, our FSM children appear in multiple pupil groups such as SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities) which then affects their academic out-comes.
  • Where FSM pupils do not have Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, they normally attain within the expected range or above in comparison to the national average.
  • Most of our FSM pupils make good to outstanding progress
  • FSM pupils also show increased confidence as a result of targeted interventions, greater levels of support or access to extra-curricular activities.
