PE and Sports Grant

Primary School PE and Sport Funding School Statement

The Government is providing additional funding to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding – provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary schools.  The funding is ring-fenced and can, therefore, only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Provision

Our school will be looking to spend the additional funding on improving our provision of PE and sport.  Some of the ways we may do this are:-

  • A specialist PE teacher is employed one day a week to work alongside teaching staff to plan, execute and review PE teaching
  • A part-time specialist TA is employed to improve lunch time activities, attend sports events and work with the PE PLT and specialist PE teacher.  He will be starting on 17/4/2018
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • Providing cover to release teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Participating in sport competitions and increasing pupils’ participation in School Games
  • Providing places for pupils at extra curricular school sports clubs
  • Working with other schools in the locality/region
  • Providing additional opportunities for gifted and talented children and children with special education needs

Reporting

    • How the Primary School PE and Sport Funding money has been spent
    • An outline of the provision that has been made since the last report
    • An assessment of pupil’s skills and development in PE and sport
  • The Governors of the school will ensure that there is a statement on the school website detailing how the Primary School PE and Sport Funding has been used
