PE and Sport Premium

WHAT IS ‘PE AND SPORT PREMIUM’ FUNDING?

Primary PE and Sport 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 Head teachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

The Government believes that Head teachers 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

 

Allocation

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. Forest Fields Primary School allocation for 2017/18 is therefore £20,722. 

 

With this funding Forest Fields will:

  • Aim to provide a wide and varied range of PE and sporting experiences for all children.
  • Ensure all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
  • Increase participation in both intra and inter school competitions
  • Encourage some of our children to further develop leadership skills through our ‘Young Leader’ training
  • Provide staff with training opportunities and continued professional development
  • Make use of collaborative and partnership working
  • Continue to forge links with other community providers and local clubs so that children will be encouraged to participate in sport after school
  • Consistently promote healthy lifestyles that will include input and guidance from outside agencies.

 

The impact of the Sport Premium funding will be measured through rigorous self-evaluation, and will include: identifying and monitoring the number of children that have participate in either intra or inter school competitions; analysing the sporting opportunities that are offered to the children and in doing so, assess the impact in relation to children’s attitudes, confidence and performance; highlighting the number of pupils that have increased participation in sport by accessing out of hours clubs and also evaluating the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
