Sports and P.E Funding Grant Expenditure

 

The government provides additional funding to schools to improve the quality of sport and PE for all children. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary school Head teachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 

Purpose of funding:

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

 

Vision:

All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

 

Objective: 

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.

 

In the academic year 2016/17 Brightwell Primary School received £8405.

 

This funding has been used for;

 

  • Qualified coaches work alongside our teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons and clubs.
  • The introduction of a lunchtime running club for all ages.
  • Professional development for teacher with responsibility for PE within the school.
  • The purchase of new equipment to enhance engagement and enjoyment levels.
  • Engagement with partnership tournaments (TA overtime and payment for Sports Hall Athletics).

 

Impact of funding;

 

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport

 

On 17th July 2017 the Department for Education confirmed that the Primary PE & Sport Premium will double from September 2017.
