Premium Funding

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Spending

Pupil premium is primarily spent on three main areas; interventions, resources and enrichment. Firstly, the school spends money on quality interventions, delivered by highly skilled members of staff, who ensure children make progress through extra interventions delivered before school and throughout the school day. Secondly, pupil premium money is spent on the resources needed to deliver interventions to the highest quality. Finally, pupil premium money is spent on enrichment activities, which aim to improve reading, writing and maths through visits from poets and lead professionals in maths and literacy.

Pupil Premium Impact

At Middlestown, our pupil premium spending is monitored termly, to assess whether the interventions and resources are having an impact on the children. We monitor whether each intervention is making a difference and alter our spending to ensure that interventions and resources which have the biggest impact are the interventions which are used most frequently.

Sports Premium

The Government fund an additional £16,000 (plus £10 per pupil between the ages of 5-11 years old) to improve the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The allocation for 2020-2021 for Middlestown Primary Academy is £17,560.

Schools are able to determine how this money is spent and are accountable for the impact of the expenditure. It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils (including targeted and in regular physical activity
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Middlestown Primary Academy uses a range of methods to monitor the impact of the sports premium on PE, physical activity and school sport.

  • Staff reviews
  • Pupil interviews
  • Observations
  • Learning walks
  • Case studies
  • Data analysis
  • Attendance in extra-curricular activities

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
