Primary Sports Fund

 

St Simon of England R.C Primary School Academy PE and Sport Premium Strategy

 

Purpose of the premium

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

 

The Secretary of State does not consider the following expenditure as falling within the scope of additional or sustainable improvement:

  • employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of schools’ core staffing budgets
  • teaching the minimum requirements of the existing PE curriculum.

 

 

 

Overview of St Simon of England R.C Primary School Academy’s strategies for improving pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment and giving pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy, active lifestyle

 

We spend our PE and sport funding in the following ways to improve PE and sport participation and to enable pupils to develop a healthy, active lifestyle:

  • To sustain and improve the provision of PE and school sport throughout the school.
  •  
  • To ensure that all members of staff are offering high quality physical education via a varied and exciting curriculum.
  •  
  • To ensure that PE CPD is on-going for all staff.
  •  
  • To provide appropriate competitive school sport opportunities for a wider variety of children.
  •  
  • To encourage and inspire children and families to choose healthy lifestyle habits.
  •  
  • To work in partnership with other schools through a local school sport partnership to maximise opportunities for children to excel.
  •  
  • To offer opportunities for our elite sports people to further both their skill set and knowledge of their sport.

 

How the improvements made will be sustainable in the future:

 

  • Through continued professional development school staff will be able to deliver consistently high quality teaching in Physical Education.
  • To ensure that we have the correct equipment to enable high quality delivery of the curriculum.
  • To identify and engage with those children who are less active and, therefore, less likely to choose sport and exercise as a lifestyle choice.
  • To work in partnership with other organisations and schools to maximise the potential of the P.E. and School sport funding and make best use of the facilities within the school grounds.
  • To give a broad base of extra- curricular activities for those who wish to take part.
