Pupil Premium and PE Sports Grant
Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for identified pupils. The money is used by the school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
The amount of money allocated is dependent on the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years. ‘Pupil Premium Plus’ is granted for pupils who are ‘Looked After’ (in care) or adopted. Pupil Premium payments are also received for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces or have previously served in the last 5 years.
All members of staff and governors accept responsibility for these pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment. Bickerstaffe CE School is committed to ‘diminishing the difference’ between vulnerable pupils and the Pupil Premium funding forms a vital part of that process.
The impact of last academic year, 2017/2018, Pupil Premium was that:
EYFS: School tracking indicates that the child made better than expected progress from their starting points, but did not meet Expected Standard (Early Learning Goals/Good Level of Development).
Y1 Phonics: The child met the Expected Standard.
KS1: Both children met the Expected Standard in Reading, Writing and Maths and in addition, one of these children achieved the Higher Standard (Greater Depth) in Maths.
KS2: One child achieved the Expected Standard in Reading, Writing and Maths and both children achieved the Expected Standard in GPS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.)

PE and School Sports Grant
The PE and School Sports Grant is funding in addition to the school’s budget. In 2018-2019 we will receive £16,800 which will be spent on providing top-quality PE whilst developing the health and well-being of our pupils.
We are lucky that our pupils benefit from a purpose-built 200m and 400m running track which is used to facilitate the daily mile running or walking challenge, all year round.
School Sports Funding will be used in the following ways:
Schools are required to publish information about outcomes in swimming for Year 6. The following table reflects that a high proportion of pupils leave Bickerstaffe CE School able to swim and this is significantly above national figures:
% of Y6 pupils - 10 pupils/10% each
Swim Competently over 25m 100%
Use a range of strokes effectively 90%
Perform safe, self-rescue in different water-based situations 90%
All of the above 90%
