Sports Premium Funding
School Sports Premium Funding Plan 2017-2018
At our school we believe that every child should be given the opportunity to develop physically, emotionally and socially through arrange of activities that support, challenge and enhances their whole development; this can be achieved through engagement with PE and sport.
What is the school Sports Premium?
The government has provided additional funding for academic years 2017-2018 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers.
How can the funding be used?
The DfE states that:
‘Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
For example, the funding could be used 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 run sport competitions
increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
run sports activities with other specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE’
As part of our normal sports provision:
All children receive their statutory entitlement to Physical Education lessons and take part in 2 hours of physical activity each week.
In addition to curriculum-based PE, across the year, we offer a range of extra-curricular sports for key stage 2 including circuit training, cricket, football, multi-skills and cross-country clubs. In key stage 1, we offer a multi-skills club.
We organise regular involvement in cross country and a wide range of district sports competitions.
We have a whole school annual sports day, where all children participate at their level and gain the standards in lots of different events.
Swimming is delivered to KS2 in the Autumn and Spring terms and KS1 in the summer terms.
