P.E. Funding

 

Proposed Sports Premium Spending 2017/2018

 

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing 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.

Purpose of funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Government Guidance for the spending of Sports Premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, you can use your funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

 

How will we be spending the Sports funding and who will benefit?

The Governors agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development; sport is subsidised in order to support families financially.

Our funding this year is £8425. We have in the past years underspent our Sports Premium, and so school has a total of £13079 to allocate to sports and PE. This will be spent over the next three years as we develop our sports provision mainly on ‘making improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years’ such as the purchase of new sheds, equipment and to celebrate the school’s sporting achievement.

 

Last year’s funding has ensured that we have gained the Silver Sports Mark award, and we are now working on gaining gold this year.

 

The table below shows how we intend to spend the sports funding during 2017-2018.
