Pupil & P.E. Premium

Pupil & PE Premium

Pupil Premium

We receive additional funding from the Government to improve the educational attainment of pupils through the Pupil Premium Grant.

This funding is based on the number of pupils who have been entitled to Free School Meals at any point during their time at school.  Additional funding is also granted for pupils of service personnel and “Looked After Children”.

PE Premium

The government has announced that it is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of Devonshire Academies. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation. Our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.
