Pupil / Sports Premium

Pupil Premium
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Information about Pupil Premium can be found here.

Sports Funding
Since September 2013, the government has provided additional funding to improve the provision of Physical Education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and ensures that money goes directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and Physical Education for all their children. Here at Lindow, we have received £8900 for each of the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 and 2016/17.This money can only be spent on Sport and PE provision in our school.  For more information please click here.

All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Lindow we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
