What is

Sports Premium?

Sports Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. It was first provided in the 2013/14 academic year and the current government has pledged to continue this funding until 2020.

 

PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

 

The Government believes that headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

 

  • The performance outcomes of all pupils compared with their peers
  • The Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular in those areas where specific funding has been provided
  • The reports that schools are required to publish online for Parents

 

All primary schools receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus £10 per pupil aged 5 or over on roll. At West Green we aim is to use the funding effectively to ensure that standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, regardless of their background, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.

The Purpose of

The Funding

Schools will have to spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

 

Possible uses of the funding include:

 

  • Hiring 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 sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport

 

At West Green Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

 

The school’s Governing Body agreed that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability. We will use our Sports Funding Allocation to continue to place a high priority on our PE provision.

 

We also aim to continue to increase the number of sports competitions we enter.

 

West Green Primary School’s allocation for the year 2018-2019 is anticipated to be £17,600.
