PE and Sport Premium
The Purpose of the Grant
In March 2013, the coalition Government announced that it was to provide £150 million for two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding is ring fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. It is allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Primary schools are able to determine what they believe to be the most appropriate use of this funding. Funding is allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism - a typical primary school with 250 pupils receives around £9,250 each year. This funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Department of Health and Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
In January and February 2014, Mr Cameron made two additional statements pledging a further three years of funding for primary schools to develop PE and school sport.
In February 2016 Mr Cameron committed an additional £750 million to the Primary School Sport Premium between now and the 2020 Olympics to help secure the legacy from London 2012.
Hunter's Bar Junior School will receive £9,800 for its 363 pupils (at January 2016) in 2016-17.
100% of this funding contributes to part of the salary of a full time, vastly experienced and skilled specialist physical education teacher. In addition to this we also fund a Sports Apprentice and the numerous sporting activities available to pupils. As you can see our investment in sports and physical activity goes far beyond the Sports Premium funding.
Their remit is to:
- Provide professional development for all teaching staff to develop their confidence and competence in teaching high quality PE.
- Develop an exciting and engaging curriculum.
- Develop an extensive extra-curricular programme to increase participation in physical activities.
- Develop competitive opportunities for pupils.
- Target specific groups to develop health and well-being.
- Create leadership opportunities for pupils.
2013-16 Audit and Action Plan
Working closely with the Points Learning Network (formally the school sports partnership), HBJS have produced an audit of our current provision and developed and action plan for how to enhance our PE and school sport moving forward over these next 5 years of funding.
HBJ Action Plan for PE and Sport
At HBJS we have identified five areas to develop to ensure maximum impact in establishing a sustainable legacy of high quality PE and School Sport.
- Quality of Teaching and Learning
- Health and Well Being
Our initial 36 point action plan (2013 - 2016) details some of the projects and initiatives that we aim to implement.
