Sports Premium Funding 2013-2020
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14-2014/15 to provide new primary sports funding. This money is coming directly to Headteachers to spend on improving the quality and provision of sport and PE for the primary aged pupils in their schools. This money can only be spent on sport and PE provision
Each school receives £8,000 and £5 per pupil based on the 2013 school census data.
£5,139 per annum will be spent on PPA half day cover for the PE Co-ordinator to organise events and activities, leaving a budget of approx. £2,861-£3,400 to spend on PE activities for pupils, including the training of staff.
How does this effect and impact on Bettridge?
As a school our vision is:
All pupils where practicable will access a breadth of physical activity, access high quality specialist coaches and PE teachers. They will be more physically active and skilled and confident in a range of activities by the time they finish their primary education in order to set the foundations for lifelong physical activity and good health and wellbeing.
I order to achieve this statement we plan to use the additional money to:
- Develop a greater breath of resources so that more PE activities can be taught/delivered.
- Improve storage so that new equipment can be safely stored and kept in a good state of use.
- Provide a clear and structured PE curriculum which is consistent and sustainable.
- Improve the quality and consistency of provision of PE and help improve staff confidence in their delivery in order to improve levels and standards, through the use of specialist coaches and CPD opportunities.
- Develop more opportunities for competition where appropriate.
- Provide extra-curricular activities (dinner time and after school clubs) where practicable.
- Develop a breadth of opportunities in PE.
- Provide specialist provision and opportunities in PE through specialist coaching and on-going training (i.e. rebound therapy).
Specialist coaching will benefit the children by improving levels of progress in PE. The coach will act as a teacher professional development opportunity, to further raise standards of PE delivery across the school and ensure this can be sustained for the future.
New National Curriculum aims from 2014 in PE:
- Competent pupils able to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- Pupils have the ability to be physically active for sustained periods of time
- Pupils to be able to engage in competitive sports and activities
- Pupils to be supported to lead healthy and active lifestyles.
