The P.E. and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the P.E. and sport activities they offer their pupils.
At Brandesburton Primary School we value the role that PE & sport plays in both the curriculum and the wider life of our school community and appreciate the potential it has to change young people’s lives for the better.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement to provide additional funding until 2020 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of P.E. and sport in schools. Our funding for the 2018/2019 academic year is £17,270.
We use our funding in many ways, for example:
• hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
• provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach P.E. and sport more effectively
• introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
• support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs and Change4Life clubs
• run sport competitions
• increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
• run sports activities with other schools
