PE & Sport Premium Funding

Purpose of funding - What is it for?

All schools receive additional funding into their school budget for PE provision. This is received twice per year and schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport and also make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport that we offer in school.

 

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extended school sports and holiday clubs
  • enter or run more sports competitions
  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • increase pupils' participation in school games
  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
  • embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching


Accountability - 2017/2018

This year the DfE have outlined five key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement in if the funding is invested in correctly. 

 

1) The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 - 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.

 

2) The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.

 

3) Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

 

4) Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

 

5) Increased participation in competitive sport.

Expenditure

Amber Valley School Sports Partnership - £900

Membership with the above partnership involves a local cluster of schools in our area. The affiliation includes entry into the School Sports Partnership competitions such as athletics, football, netball, basketball and cricket but also gives the children access to other opportunities including Bikeability and Mini-Leader training. Bikeability aims to give children the skills and confidence to control a bike safely and also gives them the opportunity in Year 6 to test their skills in a real situation on our busy roads, increasing road safety awareness.

 

A huge positive impact has been on developing children at our school into ‘Mini Leaders’, which gives them additional skills and responsibilities in teaching the younger infant children various sports activities at lunchtimes.

Our school has been able to retain our specialist sports coach in school and this year will be fully funded by the sports premium money that school receive.

Our aim at KS1 and KS2 is to lay the foundations for a lifelong journey of learning opportunities through sport. This member of staff is currently employed for 32 hours per week and his role involves team teaching, building staff confidence and giving them the additional skills and confidence to help them to teach an outstanding PE lesson.
