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.
Cotherstone Primary School receives money for a small number of it’s pupils in receipt of Free School Meals or who have been in the care of the local authority for at least six months. Additionally some funding is available for pupils who live with service personnel, but we do not receive any of this funding. Cotherstone School spends any monies received on activities and resources which will help to ‘Narrow any Gap’ between these pupils and their peers and assist them to break down any barriers they may have to their learning.

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, 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.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
