Funding for the PE and sport premium
Bellenden Primary School Sport Premium
At Bellenden, the Primary PE and Sport Premium is used to provide a measurable and sustained improvement in PE and sport, underpinned by high-quality teaching that increases participation levels in physical activity, and leads to healthier pupils who are more engaged across the whole curriculum.
At Bellenden Primary School we know that PE and Sports play an essential role in the development of our children. Participation in PE and Sports lead to improved fitness, health and well-being, concentration, attitude and academic achievement.
PE and Sports can help children to:
- Raise their achievement
- Excel in different areas
- Build self-esteem
- Learn to co-operate as a team and display leadership skills
- Experience healthy competition – learn to cope with life’s successes and defeats
- To be more responsible for themselves and others
- Develop a healthy lifestyle
Through PE, children can develop the values of:
- Courage – challenging themselves physically and emotionally to try new activities and pushing themselves to achieve and develop new skills
- Consideration – working with their peers and having to reflect on their own role in an activity
- Creativity – trying new activities and skills, and attempting familiar tasks in different ways
- Curiosity – becoming involved with unfamiliar activities and skills, asking questions of themselves and others in order to improve
- Communication – sharing their ideas with others, listening and responding in order to participate effectively in a range of physical activities
At Bellenden School we aim to establish a sporting culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport. We want children to develop a healthy lifestyle in which physical activity plays a large part. We want the children to be confident and creative in all forms of PE and sport.
We will measure the impact of the activities provided by sports premium in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the number of pupils involved in the activities, in and out of school. We will look at how the children are utilising the skills learned.
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014 – 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary school Headteachers. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase.
All schools received a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil up until March 2017. From April 2017 all schools will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil. 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/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 school games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
- providing places for pupils in after school sport clubs and holiday clubs
How will we be spending the Sports funding and who will benefit?
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that:
- all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
- that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments
- that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
The Sports funding will be used to:
- Increase the skill level of staff in the delivery of quality P.E. teaching.
- Buy exciting and stimulating resources to facilitate the teaching of PE e.g. Wake & Shake.
- Increase participation in sport and PE by offering heavily subsidised after-school sports coaching.
- Extend after-school sports activities. We offer a range of school clubs, accessed by children from Key Stages one and two. We have built capacity by employing sports coaches to work alongside our teachers and have introduced additional clubs including gymnastics and basketball
- Increasing playground activity at break times
- Provide more opportunities for children to compete. We feel it is important that children have the chance to represent their school and take part in competitive sport against other schools, especially in specialist competitions
