SPORTS PREMIUM FUNDING.

In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013-14 and 2014-15 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 school headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. 

In the Autumn Statement, 2013 the Chancellor, George Osbourne announced that he was extending the funding of £150 million for another year to the end of the academic year 2016. On 6th February 2014 the Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE & Sport Premium until 2020. On 17th July 2015 the Department for Education announced that 2015/16 funding will remain at the same level as last year.

Purpose of Funding

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.  Please see the links below to find out what we have used our funding for and check out our action plan to see what we propose to do in the future.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that we should use the premium to:

  develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers

  make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, you can use your funding to:

  hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

  provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE 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, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs

  run sport competitions

  increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

  run sports activities with other schools

A few of the things the sports premium has allowed us so far to do this year are.... buy new athletics vests, 6 weeks of support for year 3 and 4 teachers, entry to competitions through the CPRSSP, purchase the real PE resource for teachers to teach from, set up a sports council, employ a PE specialist to help coordinate PE and school sport at Holt Farm (see report below for more information)

Our school is continuing to subscribe to the Castle Point & Rochford School Sport Partnership based at The Deanes School. By using economies of scale and working in partnership with other local schools we are able to access a range of services through the specialist staff based at The Deanes School who focus on the delivery of Primary PE and Sport Premium outcomes, this allows us to enter competitions and allow teachers to receive training for PE. See our detailed sport premium grant funding report below. 

PE Specialist

This year we have employed the skills of a PE Specialist, Sarah Robinson, who has been PE coordinator at the infants for the past 8 years is now also supporting Holt Farm Juniors in their desire to improve the quality and provision for PE.  Sarah will, throughout the year work with teachers to improve teaching in PE and provide opportunities for support staff to develop skills too. Sarah is also looking at getting the school more involved in competitions and aims to improve our performances at events.  Sarah has a background in Sports Science and athletics as well as being a primary teacher she has also been a personal trainer!
