Since 2013, the Department for Education, jointly with the Department for Health, Culture, Media and Sport have been providing additional funding to schools specifically aimed at improving the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding, allocated to each school is calculated by reference to the number of primary school pupils attending the school who are between the ages of 5 to 11 years old. The PE and Sports grant we expect to recieve during the 2017-2018 academic year is estimated to be £16,000 in addition to £10 per pupil.
During the 2017-2018 academic year we intend to continue improving provision for PE and sport by:
- maintaining qualified sports coaches with an aim of developing teachers whn teaching PE curriculum.
- organise, lead and participate in sporting competitions with other schools, with a view to increasing the participation from our least confident and least active children
- widen the range of sports equipment and sports children experience within PE, and as part of our extended school e.g. quorfball, flag-football, tennis
- subsidise the cost of sports residential trips for our most disadvantaged children and their families
- combine a proportion of the PE and sports grant with pupil premium funding to develop sports programmes which aim to encourage positive behaviour and remove barriers to learning.
