Pupil & Sports Premium
The government continues to provide funding targeted at addressing underlying inequalities and aiming to tackle the disadvantages that some children experience in life. Pupil Premium funding is aimed at children who are entitled to free school meals; children who have been ‘Looked After’ for 6 months or more and children from families in the armed forces. This funding now includes any child who has been entitled to free school meals in the last 6 years (FSM 6). As a school we have allocated the money carefully to ensure that our vulnerable children have every opportunity to become an empowered learner and achieve the best results possible.
The government is continuing to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of South Rise and we have a whole school project this year with clear links to this subject area. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, unity, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.
