Children who are deemed as vulnerable by the Government are entitled to receive Pupil Premium Funding. Sir Michael Wilshaw, Ofsted's Chief Inspector, said the fund needs to “help disadvantaged children to achieve as well as their more prosperous peers”.
The initiative is intended to help to narrow the attainment gap between all children and provide extra support where required. The school will receive Pupil Premium based on the number of children in the following groups:
Schools have the freedom to spend the funding in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for Pupil Premium pupils.
Cliffedale Primary School believes that PE is essential to the development of the whole child – academic,social, emotional, spiritual and physical. It should lead to a sense of well-being, a greater understanding of health and fitness, a healthy lifestyle and feeling of self-confidence.
We aim to enable pupils to develop co-ordination, strength, stamina and skillfulness and to promote spatial awareness and intelligent reactions to situations, through a range of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities.
