PE and Sports Premium
The Government is providing additional ring-fenced funding to schools to improve the quality of sport and PE for all children. The funding is calculated according to the number of pupils on roll and in a school of our size we receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. The funding is allocated to schools for an academic year in 2 instalments in October/November and again in April/May.
This year we have chosen to work continue to work with Sports Stars who work with a number of schools, engaging in regular PE and Sport activities. By working together we can; share best practice, collaborate in PE programmes, exchange high quality ideas and broaden local competition options.
We do this by focusing on:
- High Quality PE. Sports Stars provide PE mentoring for our school staff.
- Providing a learning environment that allows children to develop in addition to the practical side a theoretical understanding of why sport and physical activity is so important to capture and sustain new interest.
- We release school staff from their timetable so they can take children to competitions, events and festivals.
Children are signposted to community opportunities so they can continue to pursue any new-found interests.
The School Governors monitor the impact of our spending by visiting the school and receiving reports from the Headteacher. Each year we publish a report on our website. This tells our visitors how we have spent our grant and what the impact is.
In 2016/17, we have anticipated £10,000 of PE and Sports Premium Funding. This is how it will be allocated:
Sports Stars: £10,934
