The Pupil Premium Grant is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include children who are (or have been at any point in the previous 6 years) entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and those children either adopted or placed under a special guardianship order. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and what the impact of the interventions have been. The priority areas for spending are detailed in the below PDF link but these are by no means exhaustive, with funding also applied in supporting specific individuals requiring a bespoke plan. The details are accounted for within the Pupil Premium Financial Accounting System.
Covid-19 Catch-up Premium
In 2020 the government announced additional funding of £80 per pupil for the 2020-2021 academic year to support children and young people to catch up lost time after the school closure in first national lockdown. This funding is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. Using the research from the Education Endowment Foundation we have produced our strategy to using the additional funding to have the most impact on our children. Please see the below PDF attachments to see strategy in detail.
PE and Sport Premium
In 2017 the government reviewed the PE and Sport Premium spend and allocated all schools (with 17 or more pupils) £16,000, plus an additional £10 per pupil. At Blackfield Primary we believe that sport and more pertinently, participation in sport, supports the development of all of our children not physically, but mentally and socially. Please see the below PDF documents to see how we have reviewed last year's spending and plan to spend the funding this year.
Sports Premium Offer 2020-2021
Each year the school needs to share how many of our Year 6 children have passed the 25m swimming assessment. In the academic year 2018-2019 93% of children in year 6 were able to swim at least 25m. Unfortunately due to the school closure in 2019-2020, there is no swimming assessment data for that cohort.

School Performance Tables
Here you can find the most recent data for school performance in the national assessments for the end of KS2. You can also find comparisons to national average performance, but there is no comparison for schools who have a similar context. If you would like to speak to a school leader to explain school and national data please contact the admin office.

SEND Information Report
The intention of the SEND Information Report is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for professionals and will inform the joint commissioning for children and young people with SEND by setting out in a single place what is available locally.
The SEND Information Report must work together with children and young people, parent/carers and with local services, including the voluntary and community sector, to develop their offer and keep it under review.
The SEND Information Report includes information about the provision the local authority expects to be available in its own area for children and young people with SEND and outside of its area for the children and young people for whom it is responsible.
