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:
• Health; and
• Culture, Media and Sport.
How is the Pupil Premium money spent?
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:
What is the impact of Pupil Premium?
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.
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 the 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.
