Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children from Services families.  This also includes any pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held to account for how we have used the additional funding to narrow the gap for these targeted pupils. We are required to publish online how we have used the premium. This is to ensure that parents and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the impact of this additional resourcing on learning and achievement outcomes within our school.

Early Years Pupil Premium

From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders, academies and any setting registered to provide the 3 & 4 year old free entitlement will be able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) to support children’s development, learning and care. Registering to receive Early Years Pupil Premium could provide up to an extra £300 a year for your child’s early years setting to fund valuable support such as extra training or resources to help raise the quality of your child’s early education. The Early Years Pupil Premium is paid directly to your childcare provider as part of their normal funding claim. It is not paid to parents or seen as a monetary amount on invoices.

Please contact us to check if your child is eligible and how to take the next steps.

Swimming Data

At English Martyrs we want all children to be proficient swimmers by the time they transition into Secondary School.

Currently, weekly swimming lessons are delivered to children in Year 4 starting in the Spring term.  Pupils will continue to access swimming lessons during the Autumn term of Year 5.

As of October 2017, schools have the responsibility of publishing swimming data.  This data should express how the children have met the National Curriculum expectations in KS2.  By the end of Year 6 children should be able to:

  • Swim 25m
  • Use a variety of different strokes
  • Be able to perform a safe self rescue
