What’s all the fuss about Pupil Premium? Pupil Premium is free, yes FREE, funding given to a school to help raise the attainment of children who may be from disadvantaged backgrounds.
As you are aware, Newham is a highly deprived borough with high rates of deprivation affecting children. What better way to tackle this than to receive extra funding to help close this attainment gap? For each child on the Pupil Premium register in Reception to Year 6, St Antony’s can receive £1,320.
With a possible 30 children in every class eligible to receive this funding- I’ll let you do the math!
At St Antony’s, this funding is spent on a wide variety of opportunities for the children. We are able to invest the money in the right resources that will support your child’s learning. Some of these include extra support staff, intervention staff, after-school clubs, booster clubs and we are often able to subsidise school trips! Yes it is true that every primary school aged child in Newham receives a free school meal due to an initiative via the Mayor, however, Pupil Premium isn’t just about a free school meal! It enables the school to access funds for qualifying children.
After learning the many benefits of Pupil Premium, I was horrified to learn that only 4 children in my class are on the Pupil Premium register when a possible 26 more children could be! St Antony’s is a voluntary funded school and the Pupil Premium funding could enable more children to benefit educationally. St Antony’s is top in Newham for Contextual Value Added-Pupil Progress and this is partly made possible due to the funding from Pupil Premium.

“One team, One Spirit, St Antony’s!”
At St Antony’s School we consider physical education to be the direct impact on the social, emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing to a pupil. An inclusive and balance curriculum is beneficial for increasing self-assurance in their ability to develop themselves and grow in a variety of sports settings. Ensure all pupils are inclusive in physical education we apply the three key aspects: Intent, Implementation and impact.
Intent: What children will experience, be taught & learn in sport. Implementation: Skills, Methodology, Approaches to be taught/used in sport. Impact: Understanding, skills & talents in Sports & Games identified & developed. By following these principles, we are able to develop the whole child and deliver a stimulating, enjoyable, nourishing learning environment for all pupils.
We encourage our pupils to engage in sports activities across the school day and beyond by are staff actively engaging in play during our lunchtime provision and suggesting clubs in house and externally that our pupils can join to further their individual potential and up take a long life of good health and wellbeing.
The Funding is allocated to Primary school head teachers cooperatively by the Department for Education, Media and sport and Health and Culture. In respect the funding is precisely spent on the provision of P.E and sport in schools.
At St Antony’s we use the sports premium funding to make viable and additional improvements to the quality of P.E in which impacts all children. We are always finding new ways to entice and engage all pupils in P.E and sport activities that our school already delivers even at the early year learning stages. We know that the improvements we make now will benefit pupils joining the school in years to come.
