Pupil Premium and Sports Funding

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our children.

We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged children are adequately assessed and addressed.

In making provision for socially disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium Funding to support any child or group of children Langley Park Primary Academy has legitimately identified as needing additional support to achieve improved outcomes in learning and/or well being.

Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time.

The Senior Management Team will allocate Pupil Premium Funding in order to:

  • Establish small booster group sizes thus improving opportunities for effective assessment and accelerating progress.
  • Provide small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning, especially in Literacy and Numeracy.
  • One to one support.
  • For additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through qualified teachers, trained TAs or external agencies.

All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving all children to at least age related expectations. A particular focus will be placed on improving Literacy and Numeracy and narrowing the attainment and progress gap between children entitled to Pupil Premium and their peers.

  • Acquiring and Developing Skills
  • Selecting and Applying Skills
  • Knowledge and Understanding of Fitness and Health

Langley Park benefits from 1 tennis court and 2 Multi-use games areas as well as an U18 football pitch.

2017-2018 Sports Funding

The Government funding to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools has been used this year to pay for a specialist P.E. teacher who is working with teachers and children from Reception to Year 3. This enables teachers to update their professional development and will be of benefit to all children. All teachers will eventually experience this valuable training on a rotational basis. At Langley Park, we encourage the children to join in with all offered activities during enrichment time and after-school clubs.  A specialist multi-skills sports club is held weekly and each year group will be allocated an additional session with the specialist teacher for gymnastics once a year for six weeks. 

Langley Park Primary Academy use Premier Sport Education to deliver quality PE for all year groups and as CPD for staff. They complete one session a week alongside the teacher and then the teacher completes the next lesson. Through observations and assessments it is evident that the quality of PE teaching is strong and children are making progress. They enjoy the sessions and teachers feel supported and well guided with lesson planning and delivery. We also run extra-curricular opportunities from both Premier Education and other providers. We will continue to use this service from September and will only spend the money we receive. With the additional PE funding in 2017-2018 the academy will purchase sports and playground equipment.
