We have gratefully received a grant from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). We will be using this grant to provide an engineering club later in the year working towards a joint project. Once completed, this project will be celebrated at an exhibition with the other schools in the community. The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS), which is run by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, aims to engage young people aged 5-19 in learning about engineering and to develop the professional skills of those involved in supporting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning and careers awareness. The EEGS also supports projects that improve wider engineering literacy. The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS) provides support for UK-based educational projects that increase engineering knowledge in young people.
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. We would encourage all parents and carers to contact us – in confidence – if you think your child may be eligible for additional school funding; this could have a significant impact on their achievement and wellbeing.
Schools will receive £1,320 for pupils in Reception year to Year 6 if they have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
Schools will also receive £2,300 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of one of the following:
• Special guardianship order
• Child arrangements order
• Residence order
At Saint Norbert’s we ensure that Pupil Premium funding is used effectively. Please view our annual statement for further details:
The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities offered to pupils. Schools are free to choose the best of way using of the money; it is to be used to increase the quality & breadth of PE & Sport provision, as well as increasing participation.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
At Saint Norbert’s, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils. We aim for a measureable and sustained improvement in school PE and sport, underpinned by high-quality teaching that increases participation levels in physical activity, and healthier pupils who are more engaged across the whole curriculum.
Over the coming year we plan to:
– Enhance our already broad range of resources.
– Develop a calendar of intra-school competition in preparation for a School Games Day during the summer term.
– Continue to make after-school sports clubs accessible to all children and maximise participation.
– Further enhance provision by introducing specialist teaching.
