Details of our Pupil Premium and our Sport Premium can be found below.
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
The barriers are as individual as our pupils are. That is why we judge it to be vitality important to adapt the pupil premium funded activity towards whole-school strategies that impact on all pupils, and specific support targeting pupil premium pupils. Some disadvantages are not always identified by the official statistics; therefore specific support for pupil premium pupils also enables focussed support to target other under-performing pupils.
Our vision is that all pupils, regardless of barriers to learning or socio-economic status will reach the same standards and make the same progress during their time at Ipsley.
We are committed to
If the pupils aren’t in the building it doesn’t matter how great our teaching is they are not going to benefit from it.
The link between absence and attainment at KS2 and KS4 DFE
If assessment is given formatively to the learner and/or the teacher about the learner’s performance relative to learning goals, progress is accelerated.

Poor and disruptive behaviour in the classroom reduces children’s ability to concentrate and absorb information.
Below the radar: low-level disruption in the country’s classrooms
When students feel that they are a part of a school community, they are more likely to perform better academically and are more motivated to learn.

Pupils from disadvantaged families are more likely to be uncertain about the qualifications they need to access their chosen career and get the skills they need.
There has been a significant increase in outcomes for PP pupils in 2017, with a greater level of improvement than for non-PP pupils:

The sport Premium is a government grant that is used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Education and sport we offer. Schools receive Sport and PE funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
The Sport Premium budget should be used to:
Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers.
Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
The barriers are individual to each cohort joining our school and therefore the use of Sport Premium funding is tailored accordingly. The main areas we focus on are pupils that do not, or have not been given the opportunity to take part in specific sports that they show an interest in. Pupil voice is a tool to retrieve this data and build a picture of each year group where we can identify groups to target.
Our vision is that all pupils have an opportunity to find a sport they are interested in that they will continue to take part in when they leave education. A wide and varied sports programme is delivered to enable this to happen and as a result lead a healthier lifestyle. All staff are encouraged to get involved in delivering or assisting in some sporting activity, either on a weekly basis, or during key parts of the sporting calendar such as sports day, or the morning activity programme tailored to increase pupil activity time on a daily basis which is a key government initiative.
We are committed to:
Listening to our pupils through pupil voice and responding accordingly
Offering a wide and varied sporting curriculum
Improving our sports facilities to cater for a high level and varied Physical Education
Effective use of sports trained staff to deliver a variety of sports safely
Using data to target pupils’ needs and channel those needs through sport
Identify pupils that enjoy sport and use it to get pupils into school on a regular basis. Target pupils that may be disruptive in the classroom and get them involved in a sport they enjoy outside of curriculum time and during clubs and fixtures. The Youth Sport Trust have carried out a survey that clearly demonstrates the impact of sport in improving behaviour and attendance in schools. The improvement of both can also positively impact on academic achievement. (Youth Sport Trust 2011).
