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.

 

Over the last three years, Sports Premium funding has been used for; 

 

  • Qualified coaches work alongside our teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons and clubs.  
  • The purchase of new equipment to enhance engagement and enjoyment levels.  
  • The purchase of new equipment for curriculum and lunchtime provision. 
  • Professional development/support for teacher with responsibility for PE within the school to ensure wide range of experiences and opportunities are available in a small school setting. 
  • Engagement with partnership tournaments (TA overtime and payment for Sports Hall Athletics).
  • The purchase of new equipment for curriculum and lunchtime provision.
  • The repainting of markings on the playground to ensure activity levels remain during break and lunchtimes.
  •  Guest speakers to inspire, motivate and reinforce school values and learning through sport.
