Again this year the government has committed to renewing its package of funding for physical education (P.E.) and school sport. Through this ‘Physical Education and School Sport Premium’ the government is continuing to provide additional funding to support the delivery of P.E. and sport in primary schools.
This funding will be ring fenced and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11).
For this academic year the government have maintained the amount of sports funding from the previous academic year. The funding formula for this year is explained in the below downloadable document.
Sustainability Statement 2020 / 2021
- Staff confidence to deliver high quality PE lessons has improved due to CPD being provided for all.
- Staff CPD focused on P.E. lessons being active throughout, the use of small sided-games to ensure all children are involved and differentiation of activities to meet the needs of all learners.
- When possible we ensured children remained active throughout each day.
- A new scheme of work for P.E. has been introduced, to ensure high quality lessons and progression throughout the school (this needs refining in 2021-22).
- The Year 6 children were all offered 'Top-Up' swimming sessions due to missed provision in both year 5 and 6.
- Staff CPD. Due to several new members of staff joining the team, including 3 ECTs, CPD for all staff will be provided through the year.
- Increased levels of activity for all pupils, ensuring a minimum of 30 active minutes in each school day.
- Opportunities beyond the school day for all. Provision of clubs, activities and events to engage and inspire all pupils.
