What is the Sports Premium?
The Government has provided funding to primary school head teachers which must be used to improve the quality of sport and PE provision for all of their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. On 17th July 2017 the Department for Education confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium will double from September 2017.
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.
All pupils need to leave primary school physically literate, with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
To achieve self-sustaining improvements in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
- 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.
PE and school sport play an increasingly important role in the lives of children and staff at Moat House Primary School. We believe that PE and school sport contribute to the development of our children. Through increased sporting participation, our children are able to build on their previous knowledge and learn important life skills which support our school values to value respect and support one another in achieving our full potential.
Specifically, our three main aims for this year are:
- To raise fitness levels of all children in the school
- To improve the knowledge and expertise of staff, ensuring they are confident and competent when delivering PE lessons.
- To develop the fundamental movement skills of all children in order to increase participation in school sporting activities.
- To participate in the events linked to Coventry being the European City of Sport 2019.
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit from quality PE provision regardless of their sporting ability; staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development and all children are given the opportunity to participate in competitive sport and all children are given the opportunity to take part in extra-curricular sports clubs.
Moat House Primary School received a Government grant of £19,270 for the academic year 2018/19. This funding has been made available to assist the school in improving the provision and quality of PE and sporting activities on offer to the pupils.
