What is the Sports Premium?

The Government provides funding,  jointly from 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.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of 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 for 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 materials for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs

Investing in sport and PE at Ainderby Steeple Primary School
The Government initiative to improve engagement in sport and physical education (PE) at school, known at the Sport & PE Premium, provides schools such as ours with an annual budget to ensure wider engagement in physical activities leading to improved health for all children. At Ainderby Steeple we believe childrens' health and well-being is a critical part of their education and improves their ability to learn. Over the last few years we have put together a comprehensive strategy, based on our own  assessment but also the opinions of both girls and boys throughout the school, that seeks to target the Premium where it is most needed as well as wanted.
We have specifically  tried  to  engage  more  pupils  (both  boys  and  girls  from  KS1  and  KS2)  in  sports  after-school  clubs  and  inter-school  competitions.  We  have  noticed  a  growing  trend  over  time  as  the numbers  involved  have  increased.  This  remains  our  main  focus  and  by  doing  so  we  hope  to provide pupils with a life-long love of sport that they will take with them to secondary school and beyond.  Below  is  a  breakdown  of  how  we  have  spent  the  Sport  &  PE  Premium  since  it  was introduced.
