Sports Premium

Highweek Primary School appreciates the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.

Our aim at Highweek is to increase the number of sports available to children of all ages by offering breadth and opportunity through the Curriculum and After School Clubs and  to improve the health and fitness of all children.

 

What is the School Sports Premium Funding?

 

Up until the academic year 2019/2020, the Government is making available to all schools a sum of money annually to allow them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activity. This money presently equates to £8000 per school per yer plus an additional £5 per child.  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 when teaching PE

  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs

  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport

  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport

  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games

  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport

  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits
