Pupil Premium Information
What is pupil premium?
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM).
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.

Sports Premium Funding
At Haddon Primary and Nursery School, we recognise the important contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our pupils. We also believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curriculum opportunities have a positive influence on concentration, attitude and academic achievement for all our children.
Our Primary School Sports Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions, training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions and providing structured play at lunchtimes.
What is Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of approximately £150 million per annum for the academic year to provide new and substantial Primary School Sports Funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. £17,470.00 for the 2021-2022 academic year. The money can only be spent on PE and sports in school.
Purpose of the funding
Schools will have to spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sports, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers to enhance their skills and provide training to enable them to deliver a wider variety of sports in the curriculum.
- New or additional sports clubs
- Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
- Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
- Running sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
- Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
- Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and residential visits.
