Sports Premium


PE and Sport Grant 2016/17


What is the PE & Sport Premium?

In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is allocated to primary school headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Purpose of Funding

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.

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 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

Our Funding

At Tolworth Infant and Nursery School we have always seen PE and sport as an integral part of children’s development and lifelong learning. Over the years we have increased resources, provided more opportunities for all children to participate in different activities during lessons, playtimes, through after school clubs, intra class competitions and inter school competitions and festivals. This funding will give us the opportunity to continue to develop and improve our provision for the benefit of the children.

The funding is allocated by the number of registered children (5-11 years olds) in the Autumn, 2016 census. The current funds for our school are as follows:

 How we will be spending the funding

In order to ascertain where best to spend the funding we are continually carrying out baselines and audits on our resources, equipment and staff. From this information so far, the most beneficial way for us to spend the funding is the following:

CPD (Professional development and training) for staff members on and off site

Team teaching/support teaching for specialist coaches or teachers to work alongside teachers in PE to ensure high quality PE lessons

Workshops and coaches for the children during Health and Fitness Week and at other times during the school year

Increase pupil participation in sports competitions/festivals, which were previously beyond reach

Buying quality resources and materials to support the teaching and learning of PE and ensure progression throughout the school (schemes of work)

Replacement of resources due to wear & tear

Impact, Participation and Attainment

Through our audits, questionnaires, polls and monitoring of teaching and learning we will be able to continue to monitor the impact and reassess any areas that need further development.

We also intend to encourage greater participation in inter-school sports competitions as well as mini tournaments within year groups and key stages.
