At Durrington All Saints C of E Infant School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our pupils. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Sports Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals and training our staff to deliver quality PE sessions.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £5,000 and the money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of the funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses of the funding include:
Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers during PE lessons
Supporting and involving the least active children by running after-school sports clubs
New or additional Change4Life sports clubs
Providing resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
Running sport competitions or increasing participation in the school games
Running sports activities with other schools
