Primary PE and Sport Funding 2016-17

Primary PE and Sport Funding

  • The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum  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.

    In line with governmental expectations, we focus our funding on five key indicators:
    • the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement;
    • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;
    • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport;
    • increased participation in competitive sport;
    • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.

    West View Primary School will be awarded £9,495 for their PE & Sports Grant for the period September 2016 to August 2017.

    How the money was spentAmount

    Impact & Sustainability

    Cluster PE and School Sport Co-ordinator
    £1500
    A large number of pupils will have the opportunity to compete in inter school competition throughout the academic year in a variety of different sports. We will look to increase participation by entering additional teams when the opportunity arises. As a result of the funding allocation we will be able to meet the criteria of the School Games Kite mark to ensure we maintain our Gold Award.

    PE Specialist
    £6500
    The PE Specialist will work to achieve a number of sustainable outcomes from our PE and Sport action plan. 50% of our KS2 pupils will be developing their skills in a range an extra- curricular sports clubs throughout the academic year. This includes our G&T pupils and children who are less active. As a result of targeted curriculum support, all staff will be confident and competent to deliver high quality PE. Other sustainable outcomes will include; all children feel confident to participate in PE, the profile of PE in school will be raised by achieving the School Games Kite mark (Gold Award). The PE specialist will ensure the necessary requirements of the kite mark are fulfilled.

    Purchased High Quality Equipment

    £640
    The equipment will be used to improve the PE and School Sport throughout school by aiding planning and improving the delivery of quality PE. An audit will take place to identify what needs to be replaced.

    Membership of Hartlepool Primary Schools’ FA

    £75
    Membership of the Hartlepool Schools’ FA ensures our pupils have access to local football festivals and competitions. As a result we hope to see an increase the number of pupils taking part in inter-school competition. The competitions and festivals will also encourage children to regularly attend extra-curricular clubs and have a positive impact on physical activity levels within school.

    Tony Blair Tennis Challenge Coaching Sessions & Festival

    £80
    Children will receive 4 hours of tennis coaching from a qualified coach and will also include participation in the Tony Blair Tennis Challenge. The funding allocation will have a positive impact on the number of pupils taking part in inter-school competition and also increase the number attending extra-curricular clubs.

    Skipping Workshop and Festival
    £300
    Our Y4 classes will work with a qualified skipping coach and attend a skipping festival. As this will involve the whole class we hope to attract less active young people to participate in physical activity. Skipping ropes will be provided at breaks and lunchtimes to encourage pupils to practice their skills thus raising levels of physical activity. The festival will ensure a large proportion of our Y4 pupils will compete in an inter-school competition.

    Hula Hooping Workshop and Festival
    £300
    The sessions were requested by our young leaders. The hula workshop will involve every pupil in school. By providing alternative provision we hope to attract less active young people to participate in physical activity. The workshop will also involve training 12 young leaders to ensure that hula hooping can become part of our active break and lunchtime provision.

    Springwell Sports Partnership
    £100
    The aim of this programme is to engage more children with SEND in a wide range of sporting activities and develop strong positive partnerships between our cluster schools in relation to SEND sport. Over the course of the academic year pupils will have the opportunity to try a range of inclusive formats including; goalball, boccia, seated volleyball and football. We expect the programme will increase pupil’s self-confidence and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.

    Total amount spent: £9495
