Sports Premium

PE Premium 2016-17

From the Department for Education (DfE site) – The government is providing additional funding 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 headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Purpose of funding

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.

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 or additional Change4Life 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 sport 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. ______________________________________________________________

How we plan to use the Sports Premium money at Woodfall Primary School

We will use the recently allocated Sports Premium for the year 2016/2017 to help us to develop and continue the thriving and diverse sports culture at our School. For the academic year September 2016 to July 2017 our school has received £9,730.00.

In particular, we will:

· Engage sports specific coaches to deliver extra-curricular activities in a range of sports.

· In collaboration with the Neston Cluster of Primary Schools, we will deliver a range of inter school competitions and sports festivals. This will build on the work previously carried out as part of the School Sports Partnership, and will ensure that we can continue to provide a full range of sports activities for all ages.

· Provide specific sports training opportunities for teaching staff

· Purchase specific resources to assist the delivery of PE and games.

· To support the teaching of swimming
