The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England. On 17th July 2017 the Department for Education confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium will double from September 2017.

SEND stands for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Performance (pupil attainment and progress)
School performance data is statistical information showing how well pupils in England have done in public examinations taken at key points in their educational journey.
Data is published for children's attainment and progress in national curriculum tests, often known as Sats, which are sat at the end of primary school at age 10 or 11.
