The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
Kelloe Primary School acknowledges the contribution of funds allocated by the Government specifically for children who access free school meals, Looked After children or children who have parents in the Armed Forces.
This budget allocation is used resourcefully to ensure a significant impact in learning and to ensure each child reaches their maximum potential.
The Government is providing substantial primary school sport funding. This 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.
In addition to the impact of our Sport Premium spending, we take part in weekly swimming sessions in order to ensure that as many of our children as possible reach the required expectation to be able to ‘swim confidently and proficiently.
- 100% of our Year 6 children were able to swim competently, confidently and proficiency over a distance of at least 25 metres.
- 100% of our Year 6 children can use a range of strokes effectively.
- 100% of our Year 6 children can perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.
