How Woodsetton uses government funding to enhance learning
Pupil premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. It was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years. Looked after children and those of service personnel also attract funding.

The government also provides school with a PE and Sports Grant, aimed at improving theprovision of PE and sport so that all pupils engage in regular physical activity and develop healthy lifestyles.
Covid -19 Catch up Premium
In light of the current pandemic that we find ourselves in, together with the national lockdown and school closures, the government have issued schools additional funding to support pupils to minimise impact of lost learning time. The school has received this catch up premium grant for the academic year 2020 - 2021. Please note that expenditure re this is being reviewed on a regular basis in light of on-going changes to the current situation and individual needs of pupils.
