Key Information: The PE and Sports Premium
What is the PE and Sports Premium?
The PE and Sport Premium is an additional layer of funding received by schools. It is ring-fenced so can only be spent on improving the quality and breadth of PE and School Sport. It has been doubled to support schools to implement the government’s Obesity Strategy and to support the health and wellbeing of all young people in the school.
How much does our school receive?
There is now a total grant of £16,000 plus £10 per child on roll. We receive this each academic year until 2020. The grant comes from 3 government departments:
- Culture, Media and Sport
How is the Pupil Premium money spent?
This year we have chosen to work with the Outreach Team from Carre’s Grammar School in Sleaford. Their network has over 30 primary schools engaged in regular PE and Sport activities. By working together we can; share best practice, collaborate on PE programmes, exchange high quality ideas, engage different young people in events and broaden local competition options.
We do this by focusing work into 4 areas:
- High Quality PE. We invest in training courses and PE mentoring for our school staff.
- We release school staff from their timetable so they can take children to competitions, events and festivals. We also arrange transport where necessary.
- Health and Wellbeing. We are working hard to ensure every child is physically active for a minimum of 30 minutes per school day. This is not limited to PE lessons only. We aim to provide every child with a sporting opportunity every year. This could be a one-off taster event or a regular school-based club. We also work with assessment data to put interventions in place to benefit identified children.
- We work with local sports clubs so that our children can continue to lead healthy, active lifestyles beyond school hours. We also develop leadership skills so that our children will be confident in delivering activities to other children and will develop their characters from a young age.
What is the impact of Pupil Premium?
Each year we publish a report on our website. This tells our visitors how we have spent our grant and what the impact has been.
Pupil voice tells us that:
‘He knows a lot about all the different areas and he gives us confidence’
‘He encourages us to persevere and he develops our confidence and skills’
‘He always revisits something we have done before and then teaches us something new, so we are always learning’
How will the impact be sustained?
School staff receive support and training to embed some of the new ideas in to their own delivery. New relationships are being created with local schools so that we can continue to work together. Children are signposted to community opportunities so they can continue to pursue any new-found interests.
How are the Governors involved?
Governors are invited to visit and monitor the impact of our premium at a school level and also at our shared events.
