Sport Funding

Sports Premium 2019-2020 

Our expected Sports Premium, government funded, grant for the financial year 2019-2020 is £16,870.

Using the funding, we continue to provide a range of opportunities to our pupils.  Please see the documents below to see how we have spent our money in the past and how we are planning to spend our money this academic year.

 

Government Funds

All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation, and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.

Ofsted’s new Inspection Framework, which came into effect from September 2019, gives greater recognition to schools’ work to support the personal development of pupils, such as the opportunities they have to learn about eating healthily and maintaining an active lifestyle. Inspectors will expect to see schools delivering a broad, ambitious education, including opportunities to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities. Schools should consider how they use their PE and Sport Premium to support this.

This funding can be used for example by schools to:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Fund new or additional sports clubs
  • Pay for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Provide cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Run sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buy quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
