Sports Premium Grant: The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 - 2017 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Eligible schools Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2013.
Purpose of funding Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding might include:
hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.
Accountability From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.One year on, Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure of additional funding and its impact.
Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
How will the money be used at Chaddesley Corbett 2016 - 2017? The Sports Premium Grant will be used to train up learning assistants to deliver sport related activities at lunchtime, including Huff and Puff activities and a Yoga club. This will help to engage pupils, including less active pupils, to participate in sport related clubs during school time.
We actively engage with the Wyre Forest Schools Sports Partnership and our children benefit from participation in competitive festivals across a range of activities. Such activities include rugby, cross-country, tri golf, orienteering, swimming, kho-kho and hockey. These activities allow us to take part in the Schools Games initiative.
We will also use the money to allocate some time to the PE leader, so they they have time to monitor planning, observe lessons and to gather evidence to ensure P.E teaching is of a high standard.
We will also use the money to use external coaches to provide engaging (and possibly alternative) after school clubs for the children, encouraging more children to take part in extra- curricular clubs and hopefully targeting less active pupils. The children will be given an opportunity to voice their opinions about what after school clubs they would like to see on offer. We will also use external coaches to deliver CPD for our staff, ensuring staff have good subject knowledge and confidence when teaching PE and to ensure teaching is of a high standard.
Chaddesley Corbett Endowed Primary School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
