In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
This funding is ring-fenced and we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport.
How are we planning to use Sport Premium money in 2018-19
In 2018-19 academic year we are planning to
- Carry on annual PE equipment audit in order for new equipment to be purchased when necessary
- Increase the range of sports on offer to try and encourage less active pupils to develop a healthy lifestyle i.e. yoga
- Purchase new playground equipment for Infants playground to ensure children from Early Years have access to active and fun break times
- Purchase new playground equipment for the main playground to ensure children from years 1-6 have access to active and fun break times. Louise Thornton and her sports leaders will deliver the Play Leaders Scheme to encourage children from years 5 and 6 to deliver quality games and activities to the younger children.
- Employ qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules i.e. Tri- Golf, Chance to Shine cricket programme and a Clog Dancing workshop
- Deliver a variety of after school clubs including table tennis, tennis, dance, football and yoga
