The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.
- We organise teaching and learning at DLA in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
- We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
- We allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any child the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged and should be making better progress. However, throughout the year, all disadvantaged pupils will benefit from the funding.
- We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis.

What is it?
The government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport for 2013-2015. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school.
How we are using it at DLA
We have used the funding, at DLA, to ensure that children have the most qualified teachers and instructors during their PE lessons. This has included buying in training and support for teachers from our local sports partnership and investing in PE LSAs to support the children during their lessons with our Sports Coach. In addition, we have used some of the money to promote the Healthy Schools Picnic in the summer and a small % towards a LSA to support a child with ADHD, so he can access weekly football club. Some of the funding has also been used to increase the range of extra-curricular activities and subsidised or funded a number of these clubs.
