Pupil Premium Funding at Stoke Bishop
The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
From September 2012, Pupil Premium is calculated for the number of children in the school who have ever made a successful application for Free School Meals in the last 6 years. This reflects the longer lasting disadvantage that may have occurred as a result of a period of relative poverty.
At Stoke Bishop Primary School we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. The School Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.

Sports Premium Funding
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
All primary schools will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil (aged 5-11yrs).
