Shotley Bridge Primary School is a two form entry primary school from Reception to Year 6. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are taught in our Benfieldside Road site and Year 3,4,5 and 6 children are taught in our Snows Green Road site.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
We will ensure that our sports premium is sustainable by improving the overall quality of PE across the school and maintaining this as we go. We will improve the quality and teaching of PE by providing long term training for staff to ensure that all teaching of PE is good or better and that staff have the required knowledge and skills to do this. This in turn will improve the children’s skills and knowledge of the subject and result in higher levels of enthusiasm and interest for clubs and events. We will also create a feeling of enjoyment for PE in events such as Health and Fitness week and competitions which all of the children can access. The PE leader will closely monitor the delivery and planning of the subject and deliver relevant up to date training for staff as and when necessary.

We strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.
