Sports Funding

Our Vision

We will strive to create an exciting and inspirational environment for children to engage in school sport. Over time the school will encourage our children to take part in lifelong sport and physical activity, reducing some of the risks of illness in later life.

What is the Sports Premium?

Back in 2012 the government announced it was to spend over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. A further amount was pledged to take the primary school sport premium up to the 2020 Olympics, to help secure the legacy from London 2012.

The funding is to go directly to the primary schools.

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

How will we be spending the funding & who will benefit?

The Governors agree that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

At William Stukeley CE Primary School we believe that this funding will allow us to enhance our P.E. provision further. It will be used to:

  • Employ  specialist coaching to deliver high quality sports lessons, whilst enhancing teachers’ professional development (within specific sports) each term, working towards the end goal of an interschool competition  held between other local participating schools.
  • Employ a specialist teachers to deliver high quality lessons.
  • Supply additional after school and lunchtime sports clubs i.e. multi-skills sports, gymnastics and football.
  • Purchase additional resources to support all of the above

We will evaluate the impact of our funding use throughout the school year to monitor pupil progress and value for money.
