Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools for pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been at any point in the last six years. For the current academic year (2020/21) the allocation is £1320 per pupil. Pupil Premium is also allocated for children who have been looked after by the local authority, or adopted from care (£2300 per child). Service Pupil Premium is allocated for children whose parents serve in the armed forces, or have left since 2011 (£300 per pupil).
Poppleton Ousebank Primary School recognises that all pupils, regardless of their background, should have equal access to a curriculum which will enable them to reach their potential. The pupil premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money to pupils from deprived backgrounds, which research shows underachieve compared to their peers.

We work in partnership with York Schools Sports Partnership, Total Sports, Taekwondo York, Belinda Turnbull Tennis, Dance factory and Netball coaching. Through partnerships we participate in both training and development, inter-school and regional competitions enabling pupils from both Key Stages to participate in both fun and competitive sports. School staff also provide coaching for football, cricket and gymnastics and swimming is part of the Year 4 sports curriculum.
We use our Sports Grant to ensure that children have access to a range of resources, coaches and competitions. Total Sports provide quality sporting cover during PPA time for staff, ensuring a consistent approach across the school.
Our children are so engaged in sports that many also attend clubs external to school for football, cricket, gymnastics, rugby, athletics, swimming, karate and tennis.
Children in Year 4 and 6 also take part in school residentials with outdoor pursuits and walking planned as core experiences.
The children are enthusiastic about the wealth of opportunities open to them and are aware of the importance of exercise and following a healthy lifestyle
