PE & School Sports Funding
The Government provided funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The Sports Premium can only be spent on Sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools received a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for these two academic years.
Purpose of Funding:
Schools have to spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and School Sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses of the funding could include:
– Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
-Providing release time for PE subject leaders to lead, model and support good practice
– Additional extra-curricular clubs giving extra opportunities for pupils
– Paying for professional development opportunities in PE and School Sport
– Provide cover to release primary teachers for professional development opportunities in PE and School Sport
– Running sports competitions, or increasing participation in school games
– Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials and resources which help to improve the quality and delivery of PE and School Sport
