Since September 2013, we are delighted to have been working with Carre’s Grammar School to increase the quality and breadth of our PE and Sport offer. Our Staff are supported in developing their skills and knowledge via regular visits from PE specialists. The Premium will also allow for the provision of National Governing Body qualified coaches to visit our school and work with our staff and children.
For information on how we intend to spend this year's allocation and the impact of last year's funding please see below.
This section of the website shares the way in which we are using the Sports Premium monies in school:
What is the PE and Sport Premium
The PE and Sport Premium is an additional layer of funding received by schools. It is ring-fenced so can only be spent on improving the quality and breadth of PE and School Sport. It has been doubled to support schools to implement the government’s Obesity Strategy and to support the health and wellbeing of all young people in the school.
How much does our school receive?
There is now a total grant of £16,000 plus £10 per child on roll. We receive this each academic year until 2020. The grant comes from 3 government departments:
- Culture, Media and Sport
How is the money spent?
Schools are required to publish details of how they spend the Pimary and Sport Premium as well as the effect it has on pupils' PE and sport participation and attainment.
This year we have chosen to work with the Outreach Team from Carre’s Grammar School in Sleaford. Their network has over 30 primary schools engaged in regular PE and Sport activities. By working together we can; share best practice, collaborate on PE programmes, exchange high quality ideas, engage different young people in events and broaden local competition options.
We do this by focusing work into 4 areas:
- High Quality PE. We invest in training courses and PE mentoring for our school staff.
- Competition. We release school staff from their timetable so they can take children to competitions, events and festivals. We also arrange transport where necessary.
- Health and Wellbeing. We are working hard to ensure every child is physically active for a minimum of 30 minutes per school day. This is not limited to PE lessons only. We aim to provide every child with a sporting opportunity every year. This could be a one-off taster event or a regular school-based club. We also work with assessment data to put interventions in place to benefit identified children.
Community. We work with local sports clubs so that our children can continue to lead healthy, active lifestyles beyond school hours. We also develop leadership skills so that our children will be confident in delivering activities to other children and will develop their characters from a young age.
What is the impact?
Each year we publish a report on our website. This tells our visitors how we have spent our grant and what the impact has been. (See dowload below)
How will the impact be sustained?
School staff receive support and training to embed some of the new ideas in to their own delivery. New relationships are being created with local schools so that we can continue to work together. Children are signposted to community opportunities so they can continue to pursue any new-found interests.
How are governors involved?
The School Governors receive a report from the Headteacher which covers the above questions. Governors are invited to visit and monitor the impact of our premium at a school level and also at our shared events.
Active Lincolnshire Award
We are honoured to not only have been nominated, but shortlisted for the award for Active Primary School of the Year at the Lincolnshire Sport and Activity Awards 2019.
