The Government is providing substantial primary school sport funding’ to the value of £320 million per annum. 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 head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision within schools.
Who is eligible?
Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual schools census.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.
Pallister Park Primary School received £20457.
At Pallister Park Primary School we are using the funding to add to our already existing outstanding sports provision. In the last financial year Pallister Park spent approximately £30,000 on PE/Sport. (Excluding teacher wages)
How will the funding be spent?
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, following certain key criteria;
Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer Guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school.
Key indicator 2: The profile of PESSPA being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.
