Whitehall Primary School

Sports Premium 2013 – 2014

Background

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013.

From September 2013 primary schools will receive an additional £8,000 (plus £5 per pupil between the ages of 5-11 years) to improve the quality of sport and PE for all their children. A typical primary school will receive about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

PE and Sport at Whitehall Primary School

PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of Whitehall Primary School. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of our pupils and through participation in sport and physical education, our pupils learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.

Effective Use of PE and Sport Funding at Whitehall Primary School:

  • AP Sports Apprentice Scheme –the school has employed a Sports Apprentice to further support the delivery of the PE curriculum as well as the extra- curricular sports clubs such as football, gym, athletics and cricket
  • Swimming extended to Year 4 to start throughout the Spring Term 2014
  • Contribution towards the SSP (School Sports Partnership)
  • Augmenting PE / Games provision by funding outside agencies to run out of hours clubs eg basketball club.
