Sports Grant

BEARWOOD SPORTS PREMIUM – Academic Year 2016-2017 

Introduction:

From March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England.

 

The Primary PE & Sport Premium:

This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - 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.

 

Purpose of funding:

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

In 2016/2017 Bearwood Primary School was awarded £9109 towards PE and Sport.

 

Vision:

All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. 

At Bearwood Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

The governors agree that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability. We will continue to place a high priority on our PE provision and, as such, have invested in additional staffing/coaching and resources to further enhance the PE curriculum and extra – curricular sports during after school clubs.

 

Objective:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport at Bearwood Primary School.
This will include:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
  • The profile of PE and sport being 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 and non-competitive sporting events.
Accountability:

From September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.

Schools are also required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.

  • Sport Specific Coaching – Street Dance, Skipping Workshops, Badminton, Golf
