PE and Sports Funding
In addition to the Pupil Premium, the government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum since the academic year 2013, to improve provision and quality of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding (provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport) is allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school.
Use of Sports Funding at Ss.PP Primary School
Our aims for the use of the sports funding are:
- Improve children’s achievement and enjoyment in sports and physical education.
- Improve the quality of physical education teaching by allowing our staff to work with high quality sports coaches who are trained in the delivery of the national curriculum. This will ensure that the funding has a legacy as our staff will become better trained in delivering P.E.
- Continue to improve our children’s engagement with competitive sports through a structured programme of sports competitions and festivals with our local cluster of six primary schools.
- Ensure that our children can access a wider range of extra-curricular sports clubs. These will be at a subsidised rate. This will increase their participation and improve their health and well-being.
We will be monitoring all of these indicators during the year and evaluating their impact by:
- Tracking levels of participation.
- Assessing children’s achievement in the physical education and sports.
- Assessing children’s attitudes towards sports and their health.
Action plans are created to utilise the funding which has been received. All plans will be evaluated and the outcomes presented on this website.
