Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and Pupil Premium funding and how we allocate it.
Staff Earning Over £100,000
We can confirm that no employees at Holme Community School earn over £100,000.
The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point since its introduction in April 2011. The Pupil Premium is aimed at addressing the current underlying inequalities, which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers. The Pupil Premium also provides funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and the children of service personnel. Parents who need the assistance of the pupil premium are supported discreetly and no child or family is publicly identified. Discussions between the Headteacher and the family are discreet and private.
Monitoring the Impact of Pupil Premium funding:
The senior leadership team and governors track the academic progress and attendance of all pupils, including those eligible for pupil premium funding. We review our pupil premium strategy at the beginning of each academic year.
Should you have any questions about Pupil Premium funding, then please contact the Headteacher.
We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extracurricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
The Primary School Sport's Funding will enable us to continue to extend our provision of activities through employing additional sports professionals, developing our resources, entering into more competitive sports competition and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2016/17 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school receives £8000 per year, plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. The money can only be spent on PE and sport.
