Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional money delegated to the academy and is matched to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals and who are children of service families. At Redgate Primary Academy we use our funding for a range of purposes suited to the individual needs of our children.

Please see our spending review for the most recently completed academic year and plans for spending this funding this year in the document below.

Sport Premium

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150m for physical education (PE) and sport. The Sport Premium grant funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. This funding is ring-fenced to be used for sport-specific areas, to make an impact in PE and sport in schools.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Please see our plans and impact reports for this funding below:

  • listening to what our pupils and their parents/carers tell us

We will measure the progress of our strategic using:

  • termly monitoring visits by the link governor
