In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
As of 2017-18, the sport Premium has doubled and Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Schools can use 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
employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of their core staffing budgets.
teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum - including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum).
How will we at Cranham account for this funding?
We will publish a statement of income, spend, impact and sustainability annually. The use of the premium will be managed by PE Co-ordinators, the finance administrator and overseen by the Headteacher. This information will also be shared with school governors and parents. Take a look at our PE and Sport Premium Documents to see how we have utilised the premium so far to vastly improve PE and Sport at Cranham.
