The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and individual schools are allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
In 2020-2021 DFE provided additional funding in the form of a Catch-up Premium in schools to support improvements following the coronavirus pandemic. Information is detailed below.
From 2021 onwards additional funding has been provided by DFE as part of a Recovery Premium. This information is added to the existing Pupil Premium Strategy.

The Government is providing funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport activity. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Schools are allocated swimming slots to ensure children have the opportunity to learn to swim. Lessons are provided by Durham County Council swimming coaches. During the Covid pandemic swimming lessons were disrupted and therefore this has impacted on opportunities pupils have had to learn to swim. Swimming lessons have now resumed and we use our sport premium to provide additional access, thus aiming to ensure more pupils learn to swim in coming years.
