Pupil Premium 

Nationally there is a gap in the attainment of children who have free school meals and those who do not. In response to this the Department for Education provides additional funding for all schools to ensure that these children meet or exceed minimum age related expectations.

At Portishead Primary School ensuring that all children reach their full potential is embedded in the school vision and our practice. We have been able to use this additional funding to further this and extend the size of our inclusion team.

Schools have been asked to communicate how they use their pupil premium so that the community is aware of the steps being taken to close the gap in attainment for those pupils.

Pupul Premium Strategy Meetings and Pupil Progress Meetings

The school holds an annulal Pupil Premium Strategy Meeting to agree the allocation of funding for the next academic year. This is held in the summer term. The date of our next meeting is Monday the 17th of June 2019.

In addition this our Inclusion Laeders holds termly pupil progress meetings with parents and the teacher of each pupil premium child. These are held 3 x per year.

Please see our Pupil Premium Policy.

Sports Premium

The School Sports Premium Grant is additional allocated funding from the government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also used to improve the health and wellbeing of primary school pupils. Here at Portishead Primary School the money is allocated across the school to ensure that children have access to a broad and balanced PE curriculum and is intrinsically linked to the fourth pupil outcome of our school vision - Resiliient, Confident Children. 

From EYFS to Yaer 6 this funding means that children get high quality PE lessons, access to specialist coaches, take part in competative sport and other exercise (e.g. Weston Dance Festval) as well as funding our healthy schools week.
