Sports PremiumThe Primary PE & Sport Premium is additional funding provided to schools by the government that is specifically targeted at improving the provision of physical education and sport.
At Hucklow Primary School we believe PE
& Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality
for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
From June 2013, the government announced
that it would provide additional funding to improve provision of physical
education (PE) and sport in primary Schools and to increase the amount of money
in 2017 – 2018. We are committed to
using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities
for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
This is additional funding for schools the amount of which is
calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January.
All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will from 2017 to 2018 receive
a lump sum of £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil. Here at
Hucklow Primary school this equates to around £19,360 per year. In order
to get the best value and maximum impact for our children and meet the
government guidance it is important we spend the money wisely and plan for
sustainability and for meeting our challenging targets.
Total number of children 2015 – 2016 – 418
Total number of children 2016 – 2017 – 419
Total number of children 2017 – 2018 – 418
What does the
Sport Premium mean for our School?
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
The DfE have outlined 5 key indicators across which schools should demonstrate an improvement. These
Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport
All our priorities at Hucklow Primary School help to achieve at least one of these key indicators.
This is a working document and will change to reflect opportunities or other priorities
which the school feels would benefit the children in our school.
