Sports Premium

P.E. and Sports Funding

 

P.E and Sports Premium funding began in 2013-2014 and has now been extended into the 2021-2022 academic year. The initial value was £8,000 plus £5 per pupil. However this has now be increased to £16,000 plus £5 per pupil. 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.  

 

The DfE website states that...

 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding.

This means that you must use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

You should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators.

Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:

  • providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sports clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2 - every child should leave primary school able to swim

 

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?

The following are examples of how we might use the PE and Sports Premium 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.

• Providing adult sports leaders to increase the variety and engagement in sport and physical activity at play and lunchtimes and to help develop junior playleaders. 

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.

 

Sports Funding Money Statement 2020-2021

The total amount of money allocated for this academic year is £17,930.  However, due to an underspend in the 2019-20 year due to Covid and the change in the rules to allow schools to carry this forward the full amount available to the school was £20,225. The breakdown of spending is as follows.

 

Payment for Specialist staff

Start date: September 2020

End date – July 2021

Cost: £830

Due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic we have spent less on specialist staff than we would have planned. We have however been able to put in place some limited provision which has been of benefit to the pupils. We secured specialist provision from basketball and cricket coaches during the summer term to work with groups of pupils. 

 

Outward Bound Trust

Start date: September 2020

End date – July 2021

Cost: £1500

Residential visits were prohibited for the majority of last year and so we could not deliver our usual program. However, we were able to arrange 3x day visits to Ullswater Outward Bound for both year 5 and year 6. This resulted in a slightly higher than normal transport cost. 

 

Outdoors Curriculum

Play Leaders

Equipment

For the past 5 years school has been planning for and saving our DFC grant for improvements to our entire outside space. Much of this falls outside of the remit of the PE and Sports Premium funding but we did intend to make some very specific and sports based improvements that did fall within the permitted spend. We took advice from the company leading on the development to ensure that we were within the criteria. The 2 areas we have contributed towards are the 2 MUGA areas which are designed specifically to support the teaching of PE and the Trim Trail which is designed to increase active play at break and lunchtimes. This spend was around 15% of the total spend on the whole project. 

 

Transport
