Pupil Premium and PE Grant

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Government considers the Pupil Premium to be a key element of their education policy. Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium provides additional funding to schools to target specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. These include pupils from low income families; children in care and the children of armed service personnel.


Staverton C of E School is committed to ensuring that all students achieve their full potential by providing high quality classroom teaching and robust quality assurance processes.

The Senior Leadership team, SENCO and middle leaders aim to ensure that any barriers to learning are quickly identified and additional intervention is carefully designed to meet individual needs.

All students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer in order to further develop self-confidence and raise their self-esteem.

The government’s ‘pupil premium’ is additional funding to enable schools to provide intervention, where necessary, for those students who take free school meals (FSM) or have taken free school meals at any time in the last 6 years (FSM6). A smaller amount of funding is also available to support students from services families.

At Staverton School we work closely with Bradford On Avon Swimming pool to ensure that our children receive appropriate swimming lessons. In year 3, all children attend the swimming pool for 22 weeks and are taught a recognised swimming programme which includes a range of strokes and the ability to swim 25m. The success rate is very high (94%+). Those that do not meet expected standards receive booster lessons later in key stage 2.
