Sports Funding 2017/2018

Primary School PE and Sport Funding

2017-2018

 

What is the PE & Sport Funding?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

 

Purpose of the funding

- Schools will have to spend the sport 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 include:

- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE

- new or additional Change4Life sport clubs

- paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport

- providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport

- running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games

- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport

- providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs.

 

How will we be spending the PE & Sports Funding and who will benefit?

At Peafield Lane Academy, we believe all children should benefit from the funding regardless of sporting ability; that children should be given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments and that staff should have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

Some of the funding will be used to purchase new equipment, some to bring coaches into school to introduce new sports and some funding will be used to improve confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across the school. We feel that this is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development of children within our school.

Coaches came into school; teachers observed and participated in the sessions, thus developing their own skills so that they could then teach this area themselves, once the coach had completed their course of teaching.  Not only did the children benefit from being taught by a specialist coach but our own staff were developed through sharing good practice and assisting in the PE lessons.
