Maybury Primary School will receive an allocation of Sport Premium Funding from the government to be spent on School Sport in Years 1-6.
What is Sport Premium funding?
The Sport Premium funding is money that is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
"The government is providing 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. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers." 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. (Taken from the DFE website November 2013)
How do we use Sports Premium funding?
At Maybury, PE and Sport hopes to inspire all children to become physically confident and promote health and fitness.
We aim to do this through;
- High quality teaching and learning
- Promoting physical activity through cross curricular lessons
- Promoting teamwork through our values, competitive sports and 'friendly' games.
- Promote the emotional well-being of every child
- Providing opportunities for children to try out new activities
We are using the funding on providing experienced and qualified PE teachers from Winston Churchill Secondary School to assist our teachers with their PE lessons. They will provide CPD and discuss ideas for activites and delivery in a range of sports throughout the academic year. This will enable all teachers to then deliver high quality and inspirational lessons to all children. By observing excellent practice over a number of weeks, this also allows our teachers to develop and extend their knowledge of specific teaching skills in a variety of sports.
The teachers are also supported with assessment in PE through the use of the expertise of our specialist teachers, together with our membership with the YST (Youth Sports Trust).
We also offer lots of other sporting activity clubs which are run by the teachers and support staff within school that are not funded through the Sports Premium, some of which involve competitions with other schools.
All of the above actions are designed to increase children’s participation levels in sport and encourage active and healthy lifestyles. The impact of this funding will be reviewed at the end of the academic year and priorities identified for the academic year 2018-2019.
