The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM').
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
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.

The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure due to the Coronavirus.
Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year in actions for schools during the coronavirus outbreak.
While schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed education.

The Government has announced that it will continue to provide additional funding to primary schools to support the improvement of provision of PE and sport. The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer all their pupils.
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children's physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
At Thringstone Primary School, we are strongly committed to PE. This is evident in the wide range of activities in and out of school that we offer, including being involved in competitive sports.
We recognise the importance of PE to the health and well-being of our children and the impact the PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities can have on our attitudes, confidence and academic achievement of all children.

When children join Thringstone they become a member of a ‘House’. The names for the houses were chosen by the children and are named after trees which can be found in the school grounds. The theme was selected in a competition and reflected our proximity to the National Forest. The school houses are ‘Ash’, ‘Birch’, ‘Oak’, and ‘Willow’.
Members of staff award house points during the week for good work, manners and behaviour.
The points are collected at the end of each week by the House Captains and displayed in the school hall. The House Cup is awarded weekly during Achievement Assembly.
