Sports Premium Funding
What Is The Sports Premium?
The government provides schools with Sports Premium funding each academic year to provide additional and sustainable improvements to PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils and to encourage the development of healthy and active life styles. Allocations are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Money goes directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E; each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Why Do We Have The funding?
Our school will have the opportunity to spend the sport funding on developing the provision of PE and sport and our aim is to create a legacy for our school for future years in increasing participation and the quality of Physical Education within school.
How Will We Use The Funding?
The school believes that physical education plays a vital role in contributing to a child’s physical and emotional development and well-being.
We aim to provide as many sporting opportunities as we can for all our pupils within the curriculum, extra-curricular activities and competitions.
The school offers swimming lessons for all children in year 3. Children are swimming for 16 hours during the year. Based on year 3 data and a survey carried out in year 6, 72.5 % of children leaving school achieved the statuary requirements (confidently swiming a distance of 25m in recognized stroke and to perform self rescue).
This funding will enable the school to build on the quality of PE and sports provision throughout the school. Also it will enable us to provide additional sporting opportunities for the children both in the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities and competitions.
