Sports Premium is additional money given to most primary schools each year since 2013 to help them “make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport” that the school offers. This funding is ‘ring-fenced’ and can only be spent on PE and sport. The grant is funded in financial years, whereas school planning is based on academic years but we anticipate that this academic year 2023- 2024 the funding will be broadly in line with recent years and amount to approximately £17,500.
We ensure that improvements we make are sustained and sustainable by:
- taking good care of the resources we purchase and actively teaching our children to do the same; investments in PE equipment and resources will sustain quality provision for years to come
- continuously building on our long term positive relationships with sporting organisations.
- collaborating with Ignite Sports and with a Professional Dance Company which provides specialist coaching to our teachers and staff, providing quality CPD that will help them teach their own PE lessons both now and in future years
- sharing staff new skills, knowledge and resources from CPD through staff meetings and training
- evaluating the impact of Sports Premium spending at least annually.
Children are taught strategies to access physical exercise, understanding its link to good mental and physical health.
Children are taught the links to physical and mental well-being which will help them grow into resilient and well-rounded young people and adults
The planned impact of this expenditure is that pupils will be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to live an active and healthy lifestyle.
We also want children to be motivated to be physically active and participate in sport and activities outside of school.
For 2022-2023 our final funding allocation was £17,520; we planned to spend this funding on the following:
- New sport and PE Equipment
- Additional after-school club provision
- Equipment for pupils with SEND to support physical activity and development
- Ignite Sports Specific coaches invited in to inspire and teach children
- Additional swimming coach for swimming lessons
- Professional dance teacher to teach dance for all classes across the school
