SEND, Pupil Premium and Sports Premium
Sefton Local Offer
The Local Offer provides clear and accessible information about the provision Sefton Council expects to be available locally for our children and young people from 0 to 25 who have special educational needs and/or disability (SEND).
The pupil premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. It is also provided for children of parents in the regular services.
There is a application form for free school meals on our Parents > School Meals page if you would like to apply for free school meals. You can also ring Sefton School Admissions and Pupil Support on 0151 934 3456.
Schools since September 2013 have been allocated extra funding for improving physical education. The emphasis is on the provision and expertise being sustainable in the school once the money has been withdrawn. The DFE have allocated this funding directly to primary headteachers and is based on the number of eligible pupils in the school. The funding was initially for two academic years but was extended for another academic year. Schools can choose how they use the funding but it must be based on a sustainability model.
