What is Sport Premium?
Sport Premium is additional funding which schools receive from the Government. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
How much Sport Premium funding is the school allocated?
In 2020-2021 our school was allocated £19,790 (£16,000 + £10 per eligible pupil with 379 on roll) and full information about how this funding was used can be found in the Sport Premium Report 2020-2021 below. This report also includes information about the numbers of children meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.
In 2019-2020 our school was allocated £19,910.
How is the Sports Premium funding spent?
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) they offer. This means that the Primary PE and sport premium should be used to:
- Develop and add to the PESSPA activities that school already offer.
- Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining in future years.
- The Primary PE and sport premium should not be used to fund capital projects; the school's budget should fund these.
Schools should expect to see improvements across the following five key indicators:
Our school is committed to delivering self-sustaining, high quality PE and Sporting opportunities for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
We employ specialist sports coaches who work alongside our Teachers and Teaching Assistants to further develop their skills and help them put training into practice.
During each half term, festivals are held to enable competition between schools (e.g. Tag Rugby, Netball etc.) or celebration of achievement (e.g. dance, gymnastics). The festivals act as gateways to clubs so that interests and talents can be followed outside school and to higher levels.
The funding has been used to:
- Audit our current provision and identify areas of development.
- Provide additional training and purchase specialist coaching to develop staff expertise across a wide range of sports/activities.
- Enable our pupils to take part in a greater range of competitive sporting activities and encourage participation in after school and lunchtime sports clubs.
- Raise the profile of PE and sport throughout the school and develop pupils’ understanding of how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
