What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 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 headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of 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 sport clubs and holiday clubs

Sports Funding 2017/18:

Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for community spirit. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level. But when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. We want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter  what their economic or social background.’ Department for Education September 2014.

 

Theory

Sport has become an integral part of life at Slingsby C P School. The school is committed to supporting every child to be physically active and to understand the benefits of a healthy lifestyle into adulthood.

A wide range of children have represented the school at Cluster sports events. Slingsby has hosted a KS2 football tournament, a KS2 rounders tournament where teams were made up of 3 local schools and mixed to encourage sportsmanship and a KS1 cross country event.

All of these events help our children to develop their sporting ability and to increase their self-confidence and their willingness to ‘just have a go’. It also

Alongside our behaviour policy, we have an exceptionally high expectation of behaviour and manners from all children participating and indeed those children attending.

Although schools have the freedom to choose how this money is spent it is ring fenced to improve current PE provision in school. This money does not cover the cost of swimming sessions as swimming is part of the national curriculum.  Schools will be held to account for how this funding is spent.

Recently, the OFSTED inspection has an increased emphasis on how schools use funding, and this is highlighted in the revised framework for inspection. It is a requirement that schools provide details of the spending online. This is to ensure parents are fully aware of the PE provision available to their children.

Funding is calculated by the number of children between the age of 5 and 11 registered at the annual school census.
