Pupil Premium and Sports Premium
At Ellenbrook, we are ambitious for all our children. Our Pupil Premium children may differ to other schools nationally and locally. Typically, they are not as eco-socially deprived when compared nationally.
We aim to see all children leaving Ellenbrook as happy, resilient and confident learners who have the essential skills needed to move through to secondary education and continue reaching their full potential.
Our aim is to use the pupil premium funding to counter disadvantage and to ensure greater equity through:
1. Ensuring and supporting great teaching
2. Providing targeted academic interventions
3. Using a wider range of strategies to overcome barriers to learning

What is the Sports Premium?
The government provides additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport, is ring-fenced, and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
What do we want to achieve at Ellenbrook Primary School?
At Ellenbrook we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the wellbeing, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions with improved resources.
Please look below at what we are doing in school and how we intend to improve our practice further using the Primary School’s Sports Fund.
