Sports Funding 2016-17
Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium:
‘ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.’
What is Sports Premium?
Back ground information
Up until the academic year 2019/2020, the Government is making available to all schools a sum of money annually to allow them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activity. This money presently equates to £8000 per school per year plus an additional £5 per child. For our school this means approximately £9,050 per year.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:
- 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.
At Barlborough Primary School, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all pupils.
What we are going to do with the money?
- Hire qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers during curriculum time lessons. This will upskill our teachers and further develop their confidence when delivering any area of the PE curriculum so that high quality PE is taught across our school.
- Provide staff with training and resources to help them teach dance more effectively.
- Encourage more pupils to take part in sports by using the funding to provide more free sports clubs that are accessible to all children.
- Run a Chnage4Life club to support and involve the least active children identified in years 3&4.
- Improve our lunchtimes by buying new equipment, employing a play leader, creating more sporting opportunities for all pupils and training mini leaders to help organise games at lunchtime.
- Buy new PE equipment for both indoor and outdoor PE lessons, improving the quality of PE curriculum lessons in our school.
- Organise an annual programme of competitions and PE festivals. This will increase pupil’s participation in the School Game. Attending local sporting events will also promote healthy competition and teach children about important values.
