As part of the London 2012 Olympic legacy, the government directed funds to Primary schools to make provision to improve PE in schools with the aim of inspiring young people to become involved in competitive sports. In March 2013, the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE & Sport Premium.
This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary schools to be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
In the Autumn Statement 2013, the Chancellor announced an additional year’s £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year.
On 6th February 2014 the Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE & Sport Premium until 2020.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
This year, it is our aim to continue developing our teachers’ knowledge and skills for planning and delivering high quality, well-structured PE and games lessons. They will receive training and support in the planning stages and delivery of lessons in gym, PE and games. Support will be provided for all ages with gym support in yR and PE, gym and games support across KS1 and 2. In addition to this, we will continue our work to increase the range of sports we offer through PE lessons and in extra-curricular options.
Planned spending includes:
- Entry in to Silver Service Level Agreement with Portsmouth Schools’ Sports Partnership:
- Training for two additional KS1 teachers on Real PE teaching and resources and 3 day training course.
- Training and additional courses for a wider range of sports provision – support to focus on planning stages of lessons initially before moving to look at delivery.
- Entrance to all local sports competitions and festivals
- Support within PE lessons alongside teachers on lesson structure, sequence and use of resources.
- Support and development for new PE subject leader.
- Improved provision for teaching of all sports and skills in new primary curriculum:
- Replacement of old resources,
- Purchasing additional equipment to facilitate the teaching of a wider range of skills and sports within a broader PE curriculum and for extra –curricular sports opportunities.
- Opportunities for extra-curricular sports and activities.
- Work to aim for silver – or possibly gold – sports mark for the academic year:
- Training and support for teachers.
- Improved facilities for advertising sports opportunities and reporting on events.
- Changes to sports day and intra-school sports competitions.
Sport Premium for 2015-16
This year, our aim was to ensure all of our teachers had the knowledge and skills necessary to teach all aspects of the primary PE curriculum. They have received training where the need was identified and were supported in their teaching of the curriculum. Following an audit of PE resources and in light of a newly planned curriculum, we began to increase the resourcing for PE and games equipment in order to give the children the opportunities to gain a range of skills and experience a far wider variety of sports and games. We also increased our levels of involvement in local sports competitions and festivals.
