PE & Sport Premium
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum, which is ring-fenced until 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.
As a school we will aspire to offer the following provision –
- To improve the physical education experience for all children in our school.
- To increase physical activity opportunities for our children.
- To enable our children to enjoy a range of school sport outside of the curriculum.
- To ensure access for all children to high quality physical education lessons to develop fitness, stamina, health and well-being.
- To ensure the development of school sport is linked to wider agendas.
St Vincent de Paul Catholic Primary school has decided to use the money to:
- Employ our PE coordinator to work alongside our teachers when teaching PE in order to strengthen teaching and learning in this subject across school.
- Support and engage the least active children in physical activities.
- Pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport.
- Increase pupils’ participation in the sports and physical activities.
- Provide places for pupils on after school sports clubs.
- Improve resources to support the development of the subject.
- Ensure our curriculum offers opportunities for pupils to develop the knowledge and understanding of what makes a healthy lifestyle.
- Forge links with the local community to enrich the PE provision within school.
- Ensure all our children have the opportunity to take part in festivals and competitions.
- Increase number of inter-school friendly matches.
- Introduce inter-house sports competitions.
