The Pupil Premium is a grant to schools intended to help improve educational outcomes and life chances for the most vulnerable children. The pupil premium is aimed at helping three particular groups who often do not succeed at school: children eligible for free school meals, children in care and the children of service families. Schools may spend the pupil premium in any way they choose.
Christ the King has significant numbers of pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant and for several years has had a coherent and successful strategy for helping these children. Results in standardised tests show that these pupils do better at Christ the King than at other schools by the end of Key Stage 2. Our strategy to support vulnerable pupils is not wholly funded by the Pupil Premium Grant; we also devote funds from our devolved formula budget.
The PE and Sport Premium Funding is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
For details of both grants, how we have spent them, and to what effect, please see the documents below.
