The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
During 2017-2018 Northcott received £16,290 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in our primary phase. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but also have the freedom to choose how they do this.
