(Ben Byford - Year 6)

Sports Premium Spending Report 2018/19

Sports Premium

To help keep the legacy of the London Olympics going and to continue inspiring the next generation, the government announced that there would be ring-fenced funding to primary schools. This sport premium funding must be used to fund improvements to the provision of Physical Education and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to give them the opportunity to develop a healthy active lifestyle.

 

Background

In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE and Sport Premium.

This funding 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.

  1. In the Autumn Statement 2013, the then Chancellor, George Osbourne announced an additional year’s £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year.
  2. On 6th February 2014 the then Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE and Sport Premium until 2020.
  3. On the 17th July 2015 the Department for Education announced that 2015/6 funding will remain at the same level as last year.
  4. On 21st September 2016 the Department for Education released its grant conditions for 2016/17.
  5. On 24th October 2017, the Department for Education published new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium grant. 

 

Purpose, Vision, Objective & Key Indicators 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.

Vision: All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Objective: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport

Schools can use the funding to:

  • Provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • Introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • Support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
  • Enter or run more sport competitions
  • Partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
  • Provide additional swimming provision targeted to pupils not able to meet the swimming requirements of the national curriculum
  • Embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching

Schools should not use the funding to:

  • Employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – these should come out of your 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).
  • Provide transport for PE events or any other events.
  • To cover the cost of capital expenditure.

 

Online Reporting 

Schools must publish details of how they spend their PE and sport premium funding by the 31st of July 2019. This must include:

  • the amount of premium received
  • a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent)
  • the impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
  • how the improvements will be sustainable in the future.

For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their Year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

Click on the link below to see how Goldstone Primary School are using their funding. This is a working document that will continue to be updated throughout the rest of this academic year, as different activities have been completed and evidenced. 

 

How much funding do we receive? 

Previously Goldstone Primary received £10,935 in funding in the year 2016-17 from the government; this is known as the 'Primary Physical Education and Sports Premium' (SSP). This funding was been doubled for the academic year 2017-2018 and we now receive £21,879. We received this again for the academic year 2018-19 with the government set to release further details for funding beyond 2020.
