2016 – 2017 academic year
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of the funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Our allocation for Sport Premium is £8850
The expenditure will focus on the implementation of:
- Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
- Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
- Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
- Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
- Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
- Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits.
- Membership to the Newquay Sports Partnership which will allow us to participate in festivals, tournaments, inter school competitions and the Cornwall School Games
- Membership to the Youth Sports Trust
- A system to track the progress of groups of pupils and identify pupils in need of targeted intervention and more able provision
- Purchasing of resources
Pupil progress and age related expectation
- Pupil assessments will be completed at the beginning and end of each unit of work. Units of work take place every half term.
- Pupil progress and age related expectation information is available on request from Mrs Wells, our PE co-ordinator.
- Our target for the end of the 2015-2016 academic year is that at least 90% of all groups of children will be achieving or surpassing age related expectation.
Pupil participation in physical education and sporting activity
- The school is committed to supporting every child to be physically active. All pupils participate in high quality, timetabled physical education.
- We continue to use activity diaries which encourage pupils to be active outside of timetabled physical education. This includes attendance at after school clubs on the school site and clubs within the community.
- Staff will use the information from the activity diaries to identify target groups of pupils that are deemed less active and physical activity sessions will be organised to encourage positive attitudes towards healthy and active lifestyles
