What is Sport Premium?
In June 2013, the Government decided to provide primary schools with additional funding for 2 years, with the aim to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.
The amount of funding received by each school is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January 2013. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils received a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
Advice from the DfE in June 2013 was the “Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to chose how they do this”.
The funding we received for the academic year 2016 – 2017 was £9,670
At Ainslie Wood Primary we have used the money towards:
The impact so far has been:
57% attendance at club/activities out of school
94% engagement in clubs within school
97% enjoyment of PE and sport lessons
98% enjoy sports during playtimes at school
86% feel PE keeps them healthy
77% enjoy competing with other pupils, classes or schools
68% feel PE improves their concentration skills in other lessons
88% feel PE teaches them to play fair and have a good team spirit
This has meant that we have:
· Maintained high level of pupil participation.
· Enhanced confidence and quality of teaching and learning.
· Improved standards of PE skills in a range of sports.
· Maintained positive attitudes to health and well-being.
· Maintained positive pupil attitudes to PE.
· Positive impact on whole school improvement.
· Greater involvement with a range of sports.
· Ensured strong, sustainable, effective links to the 2012 Games Legacy and Olympic and Paralympic Values.
Moving forward, we will focus on higher levels of pupil participation in extra-curricular clubs, improving pupils levels of fitness, improving our provision for health and wellbeing, for a whole school impact, and funding transport to enable us to participate in a wider range of health and sporting related events
