Primary school PE and school sport: new funding
1. In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
2. Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school will receive about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15.
3. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels of which they are capable..
How will we be spending the PE and Sport funding and who will benefit?
At Grassmoor Primary we are investing £2958.00 of our funding in affiliating to the North East Derbyshire School Sport Partnership (NED SSP). NED SSP is passionate about improving the lives of young people, by providing opportunities through Physical Education and Sport.
NED SSP will provide a core package to support the school in;
Leadership & Volunteering
Club & Community Links
Talent Identification & Development
Our school has completed an audit of PE, school sport and physical activity to inform how to effectively maximise the impact of the sport premium funding. Therefore, in addition to our affiliation to the NED SSP, we have allocated the following:
Tai Chi is a vital part of our Sports activities and all year groups have at least one session per week. Year 2 and Year 5 have a session every morning.
