What is the Primary PE & Sport Premium?
Additional funding from the government to improve PE and sport provision in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. It is ‘ring fenced’ meaning it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
How much is it?
£150 million per annum until the end of the 2016 academic year. Funding from September 2017 is set to rise as a result of the so-called ‘Sugar Tax’ announced in the Government’s budget of March 2016 - further details to follow.
Our funding for 2015-16 is £8900.
How can schools spend the money?
Schools have the freedom to choose how they spend the money, to achieve the four objectives below:
To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports
To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence
To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce
Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement
At Hatch Ride, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
