P.E. and Sports Funding

 

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017.   The Government has also made a commitment to continue funding schools until 2020.  This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.  The money will go directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E. for all of their children.  Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of P.E. and sport although how they do this remains their decision.  Brook Street will receive a funding to the sum of £8,000 plus £5 per pupil.

 

 

Principles

 

At Brook Street, we recognise the contribution of P.E. to the health and well being of the children.  We believe that an innovative, varied P.E. curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

 

Our Primary School Sports’ Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports, competitions, training our staff to deliver in-house quality P.E. sessions and purchasing new, interesting resources.

 

 

How Will Brook Street be using the funding?

 

• Hiring specialist coaches/P.E. professionals to work alongside our teachers during lessons.

 

• Hiring professional coaches to deliver after school clubs for our children.

 

• Providing release cover for the P.E. subject leader to attend training, to monitor the current standards of teaching and to support staff in their own development.

 

• Buying interesting and exciting resources for our children to use during lessons, at break times and in after school clubs.

 

• Buying quality assured professional development resources for teachers.

 

• Working alongside our Carlisle South Cluster Schools to increase the number of sports leagues/competitions across the year for our children to take part in.

 

• Identifying pupils who have a talent and support them financially to attend out of school sports clubs.

 

• To pay for transport needed to get to sports events.

 

Evaluation

 

• At the end of the year the impact of the funding will be measured.  The evaluation will focus on:

 

• Increase in participation rates in sports clubs.

 

• Improvement and development of physical skills for the children.

 

• Success in competitive school sports.

 

• Quality of P.E. teaching throughout the school and the improvement of staff knowledge in teaching P.E.

 

• Continued partnership work on Physical Education with other schools within our cluster, with the University of Cumbria and our local secondary schools.
