Pupil Premium and Sports Grant
Grants from the Department for Education (DfE)
PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT
In 2011 the government announced additional funding to schools to help us support children who are entitled to free school meals. Nationally the attainment data shows that children who are entitled to free school meals don't do as well as those children who are not. The government gives Stroud Green additional money, known as the Pupil Premium Grant, for every child who is entitled to free school meals, and we are asked to account for how we spend the money, making sure it makes a real difference to children's lives. We are very proud of the attainment of our children at Stroud Green and use our pupil premium money to make sure that children entitled to FSMs make good and outstanding progress. Attached is our latest Pupil Premium Action Plan, as well the DfE guidance on how we can spend the funds. Broadly, we receive £1,320 for each child entitled to free school meals.
We also receive Pupil Premium Plus. This is additional funding for those children who have been adopted, long-term fostered or are under special guardianship. Each child eligible will receive an additional allowance of £1,900 per year to help us support them with their learning. Attached is a financial report showing how we are spending this money over the next 12 months.

The Sports Grant must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2017 to 2018 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. Information on how much PE and sport premium funding primary schools receive and advice on how to spend it has been published. Government gives Stroud Green additional money for every child from Year 1 to Year 6 and we are asked to account for how we spend the money, making sure it makes a real difference to children's lives. We are very proud of the Physical Education and Sports provision of our children at Stroud Green and use our Sports premium money to specifically make sure that children get a high quality offer for physical education. On our website you will find the DfE guidance on how we can spend the funds.
Stroud Green Primary is a large 2-form entry school with 420 pupils. In 2017/18 we have approximately 22% (school census 2017) of our school community who are eligible for pupil premium grant support. The profile of our school indicates that the vast majority of these children are in the upper end of our school (year 3-6). In 2017/18 we employ a specialist sports coach to delivers at least weekly skills based PE lessons to all children. We have an extensive range of after school clubs which are both sports ad non-sports related.
