PE and Sport Premium
Primary School Sport Funding
This is a funding package for PE and school sport for primary schools. The academic year funding allocation for 2013/14 was £5063, and for 2014/15 £8265.
The funding has been allocated to ensure that PE and sport are at the heart of school life to raise achievement for all young people. This will cover aspects such as the teaching of PE, encouraging healthy and active lifestyles and ensuring that children have access to competitive school sport.
Within the budget planning, the following areas have been identified as areas of spending which would ensure that the sports funding is raising achievement of children across our school:
• Funding a specialised sports coach to support teaching of PE across the school.
• A specialist football coach to run an after school club
• First Aid club – funding a specialist to run the club
• Training opportunities for staff in school linked to PE in the curriculum e.g. dance
• PE co-ordinator release time to organise competitive events such as cross country football and netball competitions as well as networking with schools in the local area to provide level 2/3 competition access.
• PE co-ordinator CPD
• Healthy Tuckshop
• Forest school leader training
• Provision of transport to competitive events off site
• Links with cluster schools and beyond are being explored
• Swimming coaches / lessons
The impact of these provisions will be:
•Specialists identifying and developing competitive sport will improve pupils’ learning about sport.
•Opportunities to explore new sporting activities will enable children to broaden their choices for a healthy lifestyle.
•Children will be more engaged with sports and, through a wide range of competitions, will foster positive relationships with other schools and the community.
•Positive attitudes towards healthy and active lifestyles will be developed further.
•Increased participation in sport.
•Pupils will develop skills for life.
•Increased self-esteem in pupils.
•Increased team work and resilience which will enhance learning across the curriculum.
•Improved lesson outcomes in PE
