 Special needs children are allocated places to the school in two separate and distinct ways:

 Those pupils with statements or EHCPs have a separate admissions procedure overseen by Bury’s SEN team. The local authority will approach the school and request that the school consider if they can meet the child’s needs.

Those pupils who have SEND but do not have a statement or EHC plan are admitted via the normal school admissions criteria. No pupil will be refused admission to school on the basis of his or her special educational need. In line with the SEN and Disability Act we will not discriminate against disabled children and we will take all reasonable steps to provide effective educational provision. (Please see school’s Admissions Policy and SEND Policy).

Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium money is allocated to the school for each child currently on free school meals and those pupils who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years and looked after children.

The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support raising the attainment of the most vulnerable pupils.

Sports Funding

Primary Schools’ Sports Funding

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The government is spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil. This means that in 2014-2015 Wesley Methodist received £9,075
