Pupil & Sport Premium

Objectives of Pupil Premium Spending

When making decisions about pupil premium funding it is important to consider the context of the school and the challenges arising from this. Common barriers for FSM (Free School Meal) children can be less support at home, weak language acquisition and communication skills, lack of confidence, more frequent behavioural difficulties and attendance and punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent a child from flourishing. However the challenges are varied and there is no single solution. We work hard to identify individual barriers to learning, ensure equality of opportunity and provide targeted support so that children reach their full potential.

Our main objective in using PP funding is to diminish the gap in achievement for ‘disadvantaged’ children. Through targeted support we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and increase progress. We analyse our data rigorously and examine the impact of any work we do with children.


 SCHOOL INTENT

The whole school community works in partnership to promote the following:

  • Good communication, co-operation, and support.
  • The development of tolerance, consideration and mutual respect.
  • Personal responsibility for learning and behaviour.
  • High expectations of motivation, commitment, effort and independence.
  • The development of self-esteem and confidence. The recognition of potential and the celebration of achievement.
  • A responsible attitude to the environment and the community. We are committed to developing the social, moral, spiritual and cultural (smsc) aspects of the whole child.

Our aim is that children will leave Mattishall Primary School as well-balanced individuals with a life-long enthusiasm for learning.


PE Vision/Intent

At Mattishall we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and wellbeing. Physical Education (PE) contributes to the overall education of all children by helping them to lead full and valuable lives through engaging in purposeful and high-quality activity delivered through a holistic approach.

We strongly believe that PE should be enjoyable and our aim is to nurture an enthusiasm for taking on a healthy, active lifestyle both physically and mentally.
