The government’s Sports Premium is partially funded by the introduction of the “sugar-tax”, and linked to the Government’s Childhood Obesity Plan.
The funding is ring fenced in school to be spent solely on school sport and P.E.
The Sports Premium is provided to ensure impact against the following objective:
To achieve self sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
The focus of spending must ensure that all pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Schools are held accountable by Ofsted regarding the spending of this grant and Ofsted will report on how we spend our Sport Premium funding.
This year (2020/21) we will receive £16,420 – we continue to have a sports teaching assistant in school who supports lunchtime and after school activities and promotes physical activity and a daily school mile; we have allocated hours to an additional teacher to develop and deliver the PE curriculum; we continue to have access to the Staindrop Academy SLA although festivals are currently not taking place due to Covid restrictions although we are hopeful that these will resume in the summer term.
For 2019/20, we appointed a sports teaching assistant and specialist coaching and sports provision from Staindrop Academy. This SLA included two hours sports provision per week, enabling our staff and children to work with specialists and upgrade their skills, access to a sports festival and an inter school competition every half term; we spent £250 funding the membership, coaching and transport for a local football school league which will take place in the Spring and Summer terms(£2750); we made provision for our sports coordinator to consult children and plan and devise activities to encourage greater activity of all children in order to kick start healthy active lifestyles, including Forest School provision and Food For Life activities (£1000). We also had longsword dancing instruction in the Spring term(£300) and we allocated £1000 to transport for sporting and other active events.
