PE Premium Expenditure and Impact Report
The government has committed to funding the primary school Sports Premium up until 2020 – an investment worth £750 million. This extra funding is allocated directly to Headteachers to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers and to make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. For example, the funding might be used to:
- Hire qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers
- Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
- Run sport competitions
- Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- Run sports activities with other schools
- Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
- Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
PE Budget and Expenditure 2017 -18
The school has been allocated Government funding of £9916 to be spent on PE and sport provision. We have committed to using these funds, in addition to school funds, to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision across the school. This will provide all pupils with the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels of which they are capable.
We will receive £4132 of this funding in April and will receive another £5784 in October.
How the funding is used:
- Employing specialist coaches with specific skills to provide after school sports activities which cater for a range of ages and abilities
- Paying external sports coaches to involve the pupils in local sports competitions e.g. football and tag rugby
- Providing a range of playground equipment for staff to introduce playground games at break and lunchtimes
- Providing older pupils with Playmaker training so to support younger children at lunchtimes to engage in organised physical activity
- To continue providing the Fit 4 Life programme for pupils who find it hard to engage with physical activity in order to see an improvement in their physical wellbeing
Impact of this funding:
The employment of coaches after school provides pupils within the school the opportunity to gain extra-curricular coaching in football, tag rugby and general ball games and in turn, participate in competitions with children from other schools.
Resources for planning, lessons and playtime games are requested by staff and ordered by PE Leader when needed to enrich curriculum and playtime provision for all pupils.
The use of the Play Maker scheme will develop the learners’ leadership skills and will teach them the skills to set up simple games and/or activities that they are familiar with and they will feel confident when assisting in leading small group of peers or younger children under direct supervision.
The Fit 4 Life program is designed to engage pupils who do not normally find it easy to engage in physical activity. By using this resource, we aim to increase the physical activity of those who participate in the club. This in turn should have a positive impact on their view of sport and physical activity and inspire them to take part in other activities both inside school and out.
