Sports premium

Sport Premium funding, also known as Olympic Legacy funding, for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the government in March 2013. This substantial sum of £150m per year is going directly to schools this autumn, running from September 2013 to August 2015. The new ‘ring-fenced’ funding – only to be spent on PE and sport – will go directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from specialist coaching and teacher training to dedicated sports programmes,Change4Life sport clubs and support for after-school or weekend competitions.

Here at Great and Little Shelford we shall be receiving  £8780 between September 2013 and July 2014 which in accordance with the guidance we will be channelling directly into developing the provision of Sport and PE throughout the school. We have developed a two year plan that is based around the academic year September 13 to July 15. Below is a breakdown of how the funding will be spent this academic year with how we will be measuring its impact on our children.

  • Teacher training provided by the PE advisor for Cambridgeshire via 2 x INSET days. Funding for staff to attend courses run by Cambridge Advisory service and School Sports Partnership.
  • Releasing the PE coordinator from teaching duties throughout the year in order to develop a wider network of competitive sports opportunities.
  • Funds reserved to facilitate children attending sporting activities in school time including a tournaments club for years 5/6 .
  • Replacing large apparatus and resources.

 The impact of this funding will be measured through:

  • Pupil questionnaires measuring the interest of children in different areas of the PE curriculum.
  • Direct feedback by teachers on the quality of INSET and courses provided.
  • The increase in the number of children engaging in inter school sporting activities.
  • The number of children attending a sports club either in school or outside
