PE and Sport Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The government provides funding which is specifically intended to promote children's participation in physical activity competitive sports, in order to promote healthy lifestyle choices. The funding is jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport. It will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E. The amount of funding each school is allocated depends on the number of children in the school.
Purpose of the Funding
Schools will spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Examples include additional sport clubs, equipment to support P.E and hiring specialist P.E teachers or qualified sport coaches.
At Springhead Park Primary we recognise the contribution of P.E. and other forms of physical activity to the health and well-being of all of our children. In addition, it is considered that a strong and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and consequently, their academic achievement of all children.
This academic year (21/22) we have been allocated £17,230 to be spent on sport and PE provision in school.
Our plan on how we will spend this money can be found at the bottom of this page. Our plan focuses on improving the following five areas:
- To promote and increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
- To increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- To offer a broader experience of a range of sports and activities for all pupils
- To increase participation in competitive sport
