What is the Pupil Premium?


The Government allocates funding to schools to support raising attainment for specific groups of children. These groups include children eligible for Free School Meals now or at any point in the previous 6 years, children who have a parent in the armed forces or at any point in the last 4 years and children who are in care.



The Government allocates this funding to schools to enable them to tackle any aspects of disadvantage or inequality between these pupils and their peers.



Schools are held accountable for how they have used the Pupil Premium and from September 2012 are required to publish this information online to ensure that parents and others are made fully aware.



The plans below show how we are spending the funding to ensure that all our pupils make progress and gaps in attainment are closed.

What is Sport Premium?



The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, is allocated to each primary school across the country and is ring-fenced for the provision of PE and sport in schools.


Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that you should use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to:


*  develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers

*  build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years




What can the funding be spent on?



Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding might include:


*  hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE

*  supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs

*  paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport

*  providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport

*  running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games

*  buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport

*  providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs

*  pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.







From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.


Schools are required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website.

Quotes from the Inspectors:



"Pupils are proud to attend their school. They are happy, confident and very smiley."



"Leaders and staff want every pupil to do their very best in all areas of school life. "



"Pupils say, ‘It is an amazing school because the teachers help us to learn new things every day.’"






Excellent governance is reflected in the aims, vision and planning of the academy to ensure that all learners achieve their full potential. Governance arrangements embody a desire for continuous improvement.  As part of The Rivers C of E Multi Academy Trust our governors act as a school improvement board (SIB).




Summerhill Primary Academy is part of the The Rivers C of E Multi Academy Trust.  The Trust is run by members and Trustees. The members act like shareholders and are responsible for the Trust’s formation. They are informed of on-going activities by receiving reports from the directors and by attending the annual general meeting.




The Trust Board are responsible for delivering the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the Trust. They are capable of holding the academy to account and knowing how to bring about improvement. They ensure there is a strong commitment to leadership that establishes high expectations of pupil attainment; and leadership that understands that school improvement and development is fundamentally about establishing high-quality teaching and learning for the school community. Through monitoring and evaluation, the focus will be on continuous and ongoing improvement.




Members of the SIB provide effective and relevant challenge and support to their individual schools. This is underpinned by a proactive approach to their own continuous development, training and knowledge.




The level of authority delegated to the SIB is captured within the Governance Structure, which is documented here on the The Rivers C of E Multi Academy Trust website.




If you would like to become a SIB member, please email:  executive.head@summerpark.co.uk


Governance at Rivers CofE Academy Trust: Moving Forward 


During the last eighteen months, Rivers conducted its first external review of governance since the trust was established in 2014. The review was commissioned because trustees and school improvement boards recognised that the governance needs of the trust have changed as a result of its rapid growth over the last five years. Nationally, multi-academy trusts are recognising that trust governance needs to evolve as trusts develop and grow and many are now looking to implement new governance structures. Rivers is committed to being a leader and champion of innovative and sector-leading governance practice. 


Historically, the trust’s local governance has been provided through local governing bodies and, more recently, school improvement boards. The new structure will create advocate roles at local level to replace the existing school improvement boards. The aim of the proposed new governance structure is to define clearly the roles and responsibilities of the different governance tiers to avoid duplication, to strengthen communication between governance tiers and to maximise the use of the skills, knowledge and expertise of everyone within the governance team in order to ensure impactful governance across the trust. The new structure will ensure that pupils remain at the core of all decision-making. Trustees recognise the importance of the local voice and are committed to ensuring that the local tier contributes to the development of organisational thinking. Importantly, the election of two parent representatives per school will ensure that the voice of parents/carers will contribute to decisions made at trust board level. 


Please do not hesitate to contact Kate Brunt, CEO of Rivers CofE Academy Trust, if you have any further questions or comments about our proposed new governance structure: kbrunt@riverscofe.co.uk
