PE and Sport Funding

The Government has announced targeted funding to support the development of PE and Sport.  This funding has increased significantly to £16000 per school + £10 per child in Key Stage 1. Across our Federation of schools this is approximately £49,800.

While the funding is ring-fenced, and must be spent on sport and PE, within that broad requirement, schools can decide how best to spend this funding.

The Governing Body have discussed this and agreed to use this funding to:

  1. Provide training for teachers
  2. Hire qualified coaches to teach PE and sport
  3. Widen opportunities for children to experience a variety of different sports out of school
  4. Increase participation in sports competition
  5. Ensure playtimes are active
  6. Improve facilities and resources for sport.

How will this be achieved?

1. Provide training for teachers

We have entered into a 2 year partnership with the NF Primary School PE and Sports Strategy.  This offers professional development for teachers in each school including schemes of work

2. Hire qualified coaches to teach PE and sport

We will continue to work with a specialist sports provider to provide 1 hour sports provision per week for each key stage 1 class.  The teachers will work alongside the coaches for further professional development.

3. Widen opportunities for children to experience a variety of different sports out of school

We will work with a specialist sports provider who will offer 6 different clubs after school (one per half term).  All children will be able to access two of these clubs during the school year.  This will be funded from school.

As part of our curriculum projects children will visit an offsite sports centre to try a variety of new sports which we cannot offer in school

4. Increase participation in sports competitions

We will enter local sports completions organised through our local Sports Partnership. We will also develop interschool sports competitions.

We will provide a Federation uniform for children to wear when attending competitions.

5.  Ensure playtimes are active

A coach will work at each school during lunchtime to support the lunchtime staff in promoting games skills.

Training for Lunchtime Supervisory Assistance to run and lead “Energy Clubs”

6.  Improve facilities and resources for sport.

New equipment and improved playground facilities:

  • Playground extensions at Netley Marsh and Lyndhurst
  • Renew playground markings
  • New and replacement sports equipment
