Primary School's Sports Funding

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for the three academic years. 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.

At Upton meadows we have decided to use the money for 2017-2018 in the following areas:

  • Increase participation in intra and inter level competitions across the school.
  • Believe and Achieve Sports to promote extra-curricular clubs in Spring and Summer
  • Establish the Ramble to encourage active children as well as parents.
  • Continue to develop and expand the existing sports crew. Focus on upper key stage 2 children.
  • Promote team houses through termly intra-house competitions in year groups. House reward days.
  • Support and engage least active children in physical activity, offering opportunities to take part in a range of sports / clubs.
  • Work with local sports clubs to promote physical activity and the importance of discipline and behavior.
  • Sufficient swimming lessons for year 4 children. And Year 6.

Monitoring and evaluation.

  • This report will be updated at the end of each academic year to identify the success of the above initiatives and the impact they have had.
  • Delivery will be monitored by PE Coordination – Miss Duffy. This will also be overseen by Head teacher – Mrs Gardner.
  • Spending of the sports grant will be led by Mrs Gardner.
