All primary schools have been allocated an amount of money to develop and celebrate sport in school.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:
- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
- supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
- paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
- providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
- running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
- providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
- pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools
Funds have been ‘pooled’ within our local cluster of primary schools to employ specialist PE coaches and PE teachers who will work in our school to:
- Provide high quality PE lessons whilst also working alongside teachers in their lessons to increase their subject knowledge and PE skills.
- Provide a range of extra-curricular sports clubs run by existing members of staff and specialist coaches.
(running, netball, football, multi-skills)
- Provide the opportunity for sports activities outside of the classroom in the form of ‘holiday’ sports clubs.
- Coordinate and run cluster sporting competitions and events throughout the academic year.
