Sport Premium is a government funded payment aimed at improving and increasing the provision of PE in schools across the country. Each school will receive £8000 plus £5 per child between Year 1 and 6.
We believe PE is a hugely important part of the curriculum and we pride ourselves on offering children many opportunities to get involved in sport, both during and after school. This funding has enabled us to employ the services of outside agencies and specialist coaches to come into the school and provide High Quality PE and Sport sessions.
We have already employed the services of a local company PASS Ltd (Physical Activity & Sports Specialists) set up in conjunction with the Maidstone and Malling School Sport Partnership Network as we know that the expertise, drive and energy, of the team, will allow us to deliver some of the above and, equally importantly, will provide training for teachers to enable them to become more confident in the delivery of day to day aspects of PE. This will ultimately impact the children through higher quality, sustainable PE teaching and ensure our offer to all children is fun, active and engaging.
We have thought carefully about how we can work together with PASS this year to ensure the Sports funding is used in the most ways. As a result we have chosen to focus on these five areas:
Developing the expertise and confidence on delivering PE
Improving pupils’ attitudes towards PE across the school.
Developing and understanding of the importance of health and fitness amongst pupils.
To broaden the PE curriculum to allow for a range of sporting experiences.
To increase intra/inter school competition
We think you will agree that this funding offers many exciting opportunities that will benefit the school and most importantly the children.
