Sports Premium Funding
In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE and Sport Premium.
This funding is allocated to primary school headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
The 5 Key indicators that schools are expected to show improvement across are:
* The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
* the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
* increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
* broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
* increased participation in competitive sport.
Our vision is to use this money to create a culture that encourages all our children to be active and have positive attitudes towards physical activities and healthy lifestyles.
We will endeavour to use the funding to make high-quality PE and sports sustainable. Our CPD programme, use of coaches and our local sports partnership links and working together with schools in the IfTL MAT will help achieve this.
