Sports Premium Funding

What is Sports Premium Funding? 

The Government is providing an additional £150 million to schools per annum to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, will be allocated to primary school head teachers.  The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. Knayton School receives £8525 per year and we use this in various ways to improve the PE and sport provision across school.

Purpose of Funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. 

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Supporting and engaging the least active children through new and additional clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Running sports competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • Pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools

Accountability

From September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding.  Ofsted will monitor the use of the Sport Premium and its impact. 

Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day. 

 

What is Knayton C of E Primary School doing with the PE funding? 

This year the Sport Premium will be spent differently at Knayton. Our Specialist PE teacher worked hard over the last two years to improve  the children’s achievements in PE, ensure that we took part in a great deal of competitions and also developed class teachers skills in teaching PE through modelling and team-teaching.

Class teachers are upskilled as a result of this and ready to teach PE to their classes at an outstanding level. This year, school have plans to spend the funding on specialist coaches. We have already appointed a dance teacher to improve our dance provision and further encourage our children to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. In addition, we will be appointing various sports coaches to support teachers and offer lunch time and after school clubs to our children. This will ensure that we continue to build on the standard of PE and Sports provision achieved over the last two years. In addition, we have ‘signed up’ to all of the local competitions that we are able to take part in, to allow our children to flourish in competitive situations. We have had many children progress to the finals of competition this year. The competition aspect of sport is a key
