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 its 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. 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 has continued to provide sports premium funding for the academic year 2020/2021. Sports premium funding must be spent on making additional and sustainable improvements to the PE, sport and physical activity offered by the school.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
