At Barwic Parade Community Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary School PE and Sport’s Funding enables us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and developing and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government has been providing funding of £150 million per annum since the academic year 2013/14 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The 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. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil.
Here at Barwic Parade Community Primary School, that means around £9,000 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
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.
Uses of the funding
The Primary School PE and Sport’s Funding has enabled Barwic Parade Community Primary School to invest in a variety of activities leading to improved PE and sports experiences for pupils. You can read more about our plans and spend in the attached documents.
