Support and Funding

  • We strongly believe that our school can help every child reach his or her full potential through individual care and attention.

  • Gifted and Talented

    We support our more advanced children by identifying their particular talents, and ensuring that they have the opportunity to develop their skills both through school-based and external programmes.

  • Special Educational Needs

    We offer many programmes to support our pupils’ individual developmental needs, whether these are in speech, motor co-ordination, social skills or specific learning areas.

  • Pupil Premium Funding

    The Pupil Premium is allocated to children who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), to Service Children and to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This will also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

    It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school. Since September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. This ensures that parents and others are made fully aware of the impact the money has had on the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.

    Shipley School uses the funding in a variety of ways to improve pupil attainment and help ensure children reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

  • Sports Premium Funding

    In April 2013 the government announced new funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Funding will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2013.

    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:

  • football

    • Hiring specialist PE teachers/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, on 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.
