A historic breakdown of Sports Premium Grants for North Ealing Primary School:
The government has been providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2016-2017 through to 2020 to improve the 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 headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The purpose of this funding is to spend the additional funding on improving the provision of PE and sport within schools. Headteachers have the freedom to choose how this will be implemented within their school. Our attached PE and Sports Premium Statement will inform you how we are spending this funding.
The Government is providing funding to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include: hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches, paying for professional development opportunities for sport, running sport competitions and a sports council, or increasing participation in the school games, purchasing sports resources & equipment, providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.
How this funding is being used at North Ealing Primary School:
This year North Ealing Primary School will receive a sports premium amount of £8000 plus an additional £5 per pupil. This will be paid to us in the autumn term.
At North Ealing Primary School we feel it is important to encourage pupils to lead healthy and active lifestyles. We have therefore decided to spend this year’ funding on directly increasing participation in sport and extending sporting opportunities. The funding will be spent on:
- Providing a sports session for all pupils taken by a qualified sports instructor
- Providing a sports coach in the lunch hour across the school where appropriate
- Providing places for pupils for after school sport clubs
- Increasing participation in a range of school sports
- Providing opportunities for children to compete (i.e. in tournaments and fixtures between the local cluster primary special schools)
- Continued professional development (CPD) and curriculum delivery support through the Willow Tree School sports partnership (silver package)
- The purchase of sporting equipment and resources on a regular basis
How will we monitor the impact of this funding:
The school will be monitoring both the physical development & engagement levels of pupils through teacher observation and an assessment system and quality assurance measures.
The school will be offering a variety of after school sports clubs and will be closely monitoring the attendance to ensure maximum take up.
The school will maximise opportunities for both in school and out of school sporting competitions. The results of the competitions will be shared via the website & school newsletter.
