What is Primary Physical Education and Sports Premium Funding?
For the past four academic years, the government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum, in order to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. The money goes directly to Primary Headteachers, with each school receiving £8000 plus an extra £5 per child from Year 1-6.
How much funding is available?
During the 2017 to 2018 academic year, Charlton Primary will receive about £10,670. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
At Charlton Primary School our aim is to use the Sports Premium Funding to improve the teaching of physical education and to provide a wide range of opportunities for children to be active and develop a lifelong love of physical activity. We also aim to use the funding in a sustainable manner so that it continues to benefit children at Charlton Primary in years to come and has a lasting legacy.
How will the Sports Premium Funding be used?
Charlton Primary’s objectives are to:
- identify our strengths and areas for development regarding after school clubs
- provide teachers with mentoring and coaching sessions continue to improve and develop staff expertise, confidence and skills
- increase the use of Sports Leaders by running after school, supporting clubs at lunchtimes and Year 3/4 and 5/6 Intra-Sports events
- improve and promote the use of the resources to aid planning
- Promote and encourage children to participate in health, exercise and PE within class and outside the classroom.
- improve the equipment and resources
- provide additional activities such as outdoor and adventure activities
- provide opportunities for children to attend and participate in sporting festivals, tournaments beyond the classroom
- provide the Key Stage two children with the opportunity to participate in Intra-Sport competitions termly e.g. Year 5/6 dogdeball, Year 3/4 hockey
- promote and instil a lifelong love of physical activity
How will we measure the impact?
During the academic year we will continue to monitor the progress of all pupils through teacher assessments each term, pupil and staff questionnaires and lesson observations. This will inform future decisions about PE and sport provision at Charlton Primary.
We have recently been awarded the Gold Award in the School Games Mark. This is a clear marker for the impact our funding has made.
