Sports Premium Funding

Sports Premium Funding

What is the Sports Premium?

The government has provided Sports Premium funding for the academic year 2015-16 to provide additional and sustainable improvements to PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils and to encourage the development of healthy and active life styles. Allocations for the academic year 2015 to 2016 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 as recorded in the January 2015 census. It will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E; each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil - here at Mowmacre Hill that will mean around £9,500. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. .

Why do we have the funding?

Our school will have the opportunity to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, our aim is to create a legacy for our school for future years in increasing participation and the quality of Physical Education within school.

How will we use the funding?

At Mowmacre our primary aims for this money are to:

  • Increase participation in PE and sport through the provision of more extracurricular sports clubs.
  • Increase the quality of PE teaching by employing a highly trained sports coach.
  • Increase competitive sports opportunities both within school and in local area, academy trust and level 2 competitions.

The governors and staff agree that the money must be used so that ALL children benefit regardless of their sporting ability. It's important this funding opportunity is used appropriately so that when it ends, we have a legacy that can continue for future years. Our school places a high priority on our PE provision and, as such, have invested in additional staffing/coaching and resources to further enhance the curriculum PE and extra – curricular sports during lunchtime and after school.

The school believes that physical education plays a vital role in contributing to a child’s physical and emotional development and well-being.

We aim to provide as many sporting opportunities as we can for all our pupils within the curriculum, extra-curricular activities and competitions. Presently we offer thirteen different sports clubs within the school which include – netball, football, rugby, basketball, multi- skills, fun and fitness, cross country, cricket, athletics, rounders, baseball.

This funding will enable the school to build on the quality of PE and sports provision throughout the school. Also it will enable us to provide additional sporting opportunities for the children both in the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities and competitions.

Long-term vision

Our long term vision is to develop a Discovery Schools Sports Programme. The programme would see a wide range of sports and events being delivered so that all children and young people would have access to them. In order to do this a ‘sports manager’ would be appointed to manage, operate and deliver much of the programme. Specialist coaches would work across the cluster of schools in curriculum and after-school time. By pooling a percentage of the funding across the Discovery schools a strong, sustainable sports partnership would be developed.
