Earmarked Annual Grants

In this section we aim to demonstrate how we use additional funding that is Earmarked for certain pupils and cohorts of learners as outlined in the Academy funding Agreement between the Secretary of State and the Trust.

Such grants allow us to provide additional monies to support learners who maybe disadvantaged or to support the active participation of our pupils in physical activities, as well as supporting those students who need additional catch up learning time.

The Disadvantaged plan is built around the pupil premium funding which is a sum of money given to schools to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children. This has been in assistance now since 2011 and is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, lack of confidence, aspiration and self-esteem as well as issues with attendance and punctuality. The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their peers.

The PE and Sport Grant aims to support schools in ensuring that all pupils have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system. Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement

The Catch-up Strategy is funding that is earmarked to support pupils transitioning from one key stage to another who are below age related expectations on entry. This is usually directed towards students in Y7 and 8 in secondary and for pupils in Y1 and 2 in the primary
