The government has committed to providing additional funding to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium in the academic year 2017 to 2018. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered. This means the school should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
Longtown Primary School PE and Sports Premium 2017-18
LPS has been allocated £17590 for 2017-18
PE and school sport play a very important part of school life and the team at Longtown are looking to improve the provision of sport and wider curriculum opportunities. We believe that PE and school sport contribute to the holistic development of children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.
We are therefore delighted to be able to use the sport premium funding to support the development of PE and extra-curricular sporting opportunities in the following ways:
- Provide specialist coaching during curriculum time for specific classes
- Enable increased participation in and out of school clubs
- Provide a cycling proficiency training course for year 6
- Develop resources for encouraging physical activities during playtime
- Develop a Phunky Food programme
Continue to offer a wide range and number of school activities to pupils across the school:
- Years 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 will be offered subsidized swimming lessons
- School Football Club takes place after school for years 4, 5 and 6
- Multi Sports club will be offered to KS1
- Dance club for KS2
- Plus other clubs throughout the year that children will vote for at school council
Our overall aim is to raise standards in PE and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved provision and outcomes for all.
