What is PE and Sports Funding?

 

The Government has provided funding for academic years 2013/2014, 2015/2016, 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 to provide new, substantial primary school sports funding.  This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

 

 

Purpose of the Funding

 

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they  do this.

 

Possible uses for the funding include:

 

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • new or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs

 

 

How will we be spending the PE and Sports Funding?

 

We believe all children should benefit from the funding regardless of sporting ability; that children should be given the opportunity to complete in advanced tournaments and that staff should have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

 

Some of the funding will be used to purchase new equipment, some to bring coaches into school to introduce new sports and some funding will be used to improve confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across the school. We feel that this is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development of children within our school.

Breakdown of Funding

Amount Spent

Specialist Sport Teacher

Coaches came into the school; teachers observed and participated in the sessions, thus developing their own skills so that they could then teach this area themselves, once the coach had completed their course of teaching.  Not only did the children benefit from being taught by a specialist coach but our own staff were developed through sharing good practice and assisting in the PE lessons.

This facilitated the joining of a partnership with other local primary schools within our family, allowing us to access support and training and also enabling pupils to access competitions across the family of schools.

Sustainability

Our staff work alongside our bought-in PE specialists and at swimming sessions so that their own skills are developed.  This helps to ensure that the impact of the spending now will continue in to the future.  Staff attend CPD sessions to up-skill their own learning, which again helps to secure good PE teaching in to the future.
