Pupil Premium Report

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant as a way of reducing the inequalities experienced by disadvantaged pupils up to the age of 16. It is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in receipt of free school meals as entered onto the January census. This figure also includes any pupil who has been in receipt of free school meals in the previous six years of their schooling, whether or not they are currently entitled.

PE and Sports Premium 2018

Now that we have pupils in our new KS2 provision, we are able to access the PE and Sports Premium Government initiative.  In 2017/18, the grant has been used to access tennis coaching and an Occupational Therapist to assist in the development of the PE sensory curriculum.  In 2018/19 the school will be awarded the grant to spend on enriching the PE curriculum. Initially, the grant will be used to assess and develop the KS2’s ability to become competent swimmers – living in Cornwall surrounded by our amazing coastline I believe that it is extremely important for our young people to swim competently.  The PE team are also currently assessing our new KS2 pupil needs before writing a development plan to map out how we are going to spend the funding to offer best value for money. This is a very exciting opportunity and we are looking forward to supporting our youngest pupils and developing their interest and participation in the wonderful world of sport.

Our offer will include further OT input to advice on sensory circuits and sensory breaks in the KS2 base, The introduction of Outdoor Education through Canoe Cornwall, Upskilling our PE teams through higher level training in Rebound Therapy and the introduction of specific gymnastic input through focussed gymnastic programme with a high skilled gymnastics coach in turn training the PE staff in this areas of the curriculum
