Sports Funding

Purpose of funding - What is it for?

All schools have received 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, but have the freedom to choose how they do this.

 

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE;
  • supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs;
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport;
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport;
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games;
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport;
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs;
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.


Accountability

From September 2013, schools are held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.

 

One year on, Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure of additional funding and its impact.

Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.

Expenditure

Amber Valley School Sports Partnership - £900.00

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.

 

Teaching & Learning Assistant (Specialising in PE)

Our school has been able to retain our specialist sports coach in school and this is partly funded by the sports premium and pupil premium money that school receive. This member of staff is a fully qualified sports professional and plans lessons, which are tailor made suites of sport and activity options targeted towards achieving curriculum outcomes. Lessons are inclusive, with complete activity structures in place to engage all pupils from those not normally inspired by sport through to the budding stars of the future. The lessons bring PE into each level of the curriculum from EYFS right through to adult and community sport. 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. Please see the PE, Sports and Physical Literacy section on our website for greater detail regarding the delivery of PE in our school and some fabulous photographs of the children engaging and competing in several sporting activities.
