PE & Sports Premium

PE & Sports Premium

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. This offer has been extended to an additional 3 years to 2020. The 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 headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years – here at Shoscombe Church School that will mean around £8,090 per year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in school. In addition to this schools with 17 or more pupils will receive a further £8000 plus £5 per pupil. This came into effect from 2017/18 academic year.

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. Shoscombe Church School is choosing to invest the funding in the following ways:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE

  • supporting and engaging children through offering after school clubs with various physical focuses

  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport

  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport

  • running sport competitions / increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games / taking part in public performances

  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport

  • offering PE opportunities off site enabling children to access equipment that is not typically accessible in school

  • update school sports equipment

  • improve Forest school provision

  • improve children’s recreational opportunities and play at lunchtimes

  • offer swimming to all children across KS1 and KS2

Accountability

From September 2013, schools are being 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.
