The Governors of Rosley C of E School review spending regularly throughout the year and prepare budgets in May and October. Through careful monitoring, the Governors have ensured that the school has never had a deficit budget. The Governors use the benchmarking tool to evaluate the school’s spending and to check that the budget is in line with similar schools.
The school buildings and sports pavilion are well maintained and the school and classrooms are extremely well resourced. All pupils benefit from the provision of specialist teaching in French and music.
For the year 2020 the school has been allocated £2690 Pupil Premium. This money is targeted to be spent on disadvantaged children to close the attainment gap and learning opportunities between them and their peers. Parents are consulted on how best to use the money for children who have been awarded Pupil Premium.
This year as our cohort of pupils qualifying for pupil premium is extremely small the data will be suppressed so as to protect the identity of qualifying pupils. The Pupil Premium Strategy Statement is available from school, for scrutiny by governors and external inspectors.
For 2018-19 Rosley School received £16 580 funding to improve the sports provision in the school. This money has been used to pay for specialist PE/sports teaching across Foundation Stage and Key Stages 1 and 2, swimming, increased opportunities, CPD, equipment and transportation costs to sporting events.
We now receive funding from the government to cover improvements to the delivery of PE and Games in school. To read about how this grant has been spent so far and future plans in PE, please click on the links.
