Sports Premium

Victoria Park Primary School

PE Funding 2016/17

 

What is it?

Since 2013, the government has provided additional sport funding to schools. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. Each school will receive £8000 plus an extra £5 per pupil. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

 

How much sport premium money did we receive in 2016/17?

At Victoria Park Primary, we receive £9,920.  We have decided to prioritise:

  • staff training to ensure the funding has a lasting impact on our school
  • increasing the range of extra-curricular opportunities
  • increasing access to intra and inter-school sports competition, including through membership of Ashton Park Sports Partnership (click here to find out more about their work)
  • employing sports coaches to work alongside our school staff
  • providing all children with the opportunity to engage in new sports and activities

 

What benefits are there?

Through sport children can develop skills and attitudes that will carry them through to adulthood. Through sport children can develop confidence, self-esteem, resilience, cooperation, team work, health and fitness, turn taking, coping with success and losing, conflict resolution, determination, aspiration and desire and well-being – amongst many others. Through sport children can learn to play sports and take part in activities and give them the confidence to join clubs and activities outside of school.

 

What does the Sport Premium mean for my school?

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

 

At Victoria Park Primary School we have split up the funding into three different areas: Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:

Since the introduction of the sports premium funding there has been a steady increase in the number of children attending clubs.
