What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is a Government funded finance stream that is aimed to support the improvement of educational outcomes for groups of disadvantaged children e.g. those in receipt of Free School Meals currently or during the last 6 years ( EVER 6), Service children and Looked After Children.
How should it be spent?
The grant may be spent in the following ways:
- For the purposes of the school i.e. for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school.
- For the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies.
- On community facilities e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated
The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year beginning 1 April; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.
At Charnwood Primary School we want to nurture all children including those in receipt of Pupil Premium to grow into inspired, confident and inquisitive individuals. We want to support both them and their families to achieve the very best that they are able. We wish to instil a passion for learning and self-improvement long after they leave our school.
Outcomes of our support:
- To become inspired and proactive learners.
- To achieve the very best that they can.
- To have access to a wide range of experiences and ideas.
All support will be evaluated and the impact of the support judged. This analysis will be used to inform future spending.

Pupil Premium Funding 2017-2018
Carried forward from 2016-2017
Through our sports funding we have been able to provide a range of different amenities which has developed the teaching and learning of PE within the school. In 2017/18 the funding was used for the following things:
- Secure a running track for children to be able to run a mile every day whatever the weather.
- Provide a new sports kit for the school to enter larger teams into inter school competitions.
- Use Progressive Sports to provide assessments of children's fitness levels and team teach along with staff.
- Purchase new equipment to encourage the participation in new sports and promote an active lifestyle.
In the financial year of 2018/19 we plan to continue to develop the subject knowledge of the teacher’s and improve wellness across the school. For more information on PE events and feedback visit the PE section of the website.
Fundamental British Values
The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by the Prime Minister. At Charnwood, we encourage all children to be tolerant and respectful to those of different faiths and beliefs. This is done by providing the children with an understanding of the main festivals, the key dates in various religions and major political events, such as elections. We learn about the ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families; we undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate and explore these, and other cultures in our country.
At Charnwood, we value the voice of the child and promote democratic processes such as our school council whose members are voted for by the children. Ideas and events are planned and discussed with a chance for debate and putting forward points of view.
EAL and Ethnic Minority Funding
This is a ring fenced budget devolved to schools to support children with English as an additional Language.
Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) Development at Charnwood.
Our Mission Statement at Charnwood Primary School of Inspire, Nurture, Achieve sets the core purpose of our learning. To ensure that children are meeting their true potential, and are able to access an outstanding curriculum we provide a curriculum that is rich in spiritual, moral, social and cultural developments.
Spiritual development relates to that aspect of inner life through which our children acquire insights into their personal existence that are of enduring worth. Spiritual is not synonymous with religious; all areas of the curriculum may contribute to pupils' spiritual development. It is about the development of a sense of identity, self-worth, personal insight, meaning and purpose, developing recognition that pupils own insights, principles, beliefs, attitudes and that values influence them in their own lives.
Moral development is about building a framework of moral values for our children, which regulates their personal behaviour. It is the development of our understanding of society’s shared and agreed values; including an understanding that there are contentious issues where there is disagreement, and that society’s values change. To know there is a range of views and the reasons for the range. It is also about developing an opinion about the different views.
Social development is about helping our young people to work effectively with each other and to participate successfully in the community as a whole. It is about the development of the skills and personal qualities necessary for living and working together; and functioning effectively in a multi-racial, multi-cultural society.
Cultural development is about our children understanding their own culture, other cultures in Lichfield and Staffordshire and in the UK as a whole. It is about understanding cultures represented in Europe and elsewhere in the world; about understanding and feeling comfortable in a variety of cultures and being able to operate in the emerging world culture of shared experiences provided by television, travel and the internet. It also fosters an eagerness to participate in new experiences and to develop awareness of music, art, dance and literature, etc. in different cultures.
At Charnwood Primary School children:
- Reflect on beliefs, values and more profound aspects of human experience and use their imagination and creativity, developing curiosity in their learning
- Develop and apply an understanding of right and wrong in their school life and life outside school;
- Take part in a range of activities requiring social skills, including sports clubs, collaborative learning, gardening club, woodland adventures
- Develop an awareness of, and respect towards, diversity in relation to gender, race, religion and belief, culture and disability;
- Gain a well-informed understanding of the options and challenges facing them as they move through the school and on to the next stage of their education and training;
- Overcome any barriers to their learning;
- Respond positively to a range of artistic, sporting and other cultural opportunities, provided by the school, including, for example developing an appreciation of theatre, music and literature;
- Develop the skills and attitudes to enable them to participate fully and positively in democratic, modern Britain; and Understand and appreciate the range of different cultures within school and further afield as an essential element of their preparation for life.
