At Kilburn Grange School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement all our children.
What is the PE and Sport Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and the money goes directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. In 2016-17, each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil (Year 1–Year 6) each year. For the academic year 2017-18, this amount will be increased and each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil (Year 1-Year 6). Information about the government initiative for funding sport in primary schools can be found at: www.education.gov.uk.
Purpose of the funding
Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.
For 2016/17 the school received £8,410 to support improvements in PE and Sport.
- To ensure PE provision is of high quality, both within the core day and the extended day, including during lunch and after school clubs.
- To improve participation rates in a wider range of PE and sport activities.
- To ensure good quality professional development for staff in PE and sport.
Impact of the 2016/17 PE and Sport Premium Funding
- Dedicated PE funding from the government continues to strengthen the quality of professional development for staff.
- The school has been able to offer more sporting opportunities for pupils, by purchasing more resources and equipment.
- The funding enables the provision of good quality extended day sport offer, with 5 sports and dance clubs across the week. In addition, the school provides a range of sporting equipment for pupils to use during outside learning (lunchtime and playtime).
How was the money for 2016/2017 spent?
How will the money for 2017/18 be spent?
The school will structure the spend of the PE and Sport Premium as in 2016/17, aiming to embed the impact of the additional training and improve the sport and physical education offer. This will also form part of the school’s healthy school action plan to apply for a healthy school award in the following academic year.
