The government is continuing to provide schools with PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Here at St Philip's that will mean around £18,000 a year. The money can only be spent on Sport and PE provision in schools and we are free to choose how to spend this money.
We use the premium to:
1. develop or add to the PE and sports activities that we already offer
2. build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit the pupils joining the school in future years.
There are five key indicators that we should expect to see improvement across:
1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school;
2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement;
3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;
5. Increased participation in competitive sport.
Enhancing our PE and physical activity curriculum.
The PE lessons taught aim to engage and inspire all pupils. Pupils receive at least 2 hours of scheduled PE curriculum time per week and over the year will participate in dance, gymnastics, outdoor games, athletics and swimming lessons, supported by the Real PE Scheme of work for Physical Education.
As part of the funding criteria we are required to publish details of how we plan to spend the monies and a review of the impact on pupil outcomes.
