Pupil Premium and Sports Premium

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is received directly from central government to help each school meet the needs of disadvantaged pupils who are in receipt of free school meals, or who have been in receipt of free school meals in the past 6 years.

At Weyfield Academy the primary way we support disadvantaged pupils is through the provision of high quality teaching and learning. We have a range of provisions in place including :

  • 2 home school link workers to support vulnerable families.
  • A free breakfast club to ensure pupils start the day ready to learn
  • Extra 1:1 support to enable statemented pupils to access the curriculum

In the academic year 2016/17 our Pupil Premium funding is approximately £246,000. 46% of our pupils qualify for pupil premium funding.

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

Weyfield Primary Academy has been allocated approximately £9500 through the Sports Premium funding.
