Funding and Finances

Enhancing the quality of provision at our school.

Our finances

As of September 2020, all schools are required to publish how many people in their organisation earn over £100,000 and publish a link to our page on the Government financial benchmarking service.

Albourne CofE Primary has zero people in our organisation earning £100,000 or above.


The Government benchmarking page for our school can be found at the link below.

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to children who are either looked after by the Local Authority; those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces. The level of premium for 2019-20 is £1,320 per primary pupil, with £1,900 for those with special guardianship or adopted from care.

The purpose of the funding is to help schools to close the gap between the progress of children who are disadvantaged or vulnerable, and their peers. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocated to their school is spent. Schools are accountable for their use of the additional funding to support pupils from low-income or vulnerable families and the impact this has on educational attainment.


The barriers that need to be overcome by vulnerable pupils can vary - at Albourne we are aware of:

  • Emotional barriers to learning - where a pupil struggles with situations beyond their control and needs support to manage their feelings and therefore needs pastoral support.

  • Financial barriers to learning - where a pupil is unable to access all the opportunities that are offered due to financial constraints and therefore needs financial support.

  • Academic barriers to learning - where a pupil has lower attainment than their peers and therefore needs additional support to close the gap.

Sports Premium

Sports funding is a grant given to every primary school. The aim of this funding is to enhance the quality of provision of sports and Physical Education (PE) and to enable all children to take part in a wider range of activities that promote a healthy lifestyle.


Our PE and sports premium allocation for the academic year 2023-24 is £17,580.

The documents below show how we have spent our grant in previous years.
