What is Sports Premium Funding?
The government has provided funding for the last three years to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
This year, the Chancellor, George Osborne in the 2016 Budget, outlined that revenue from the soft drinks industry levy over the scorecard period will be used to:
- Double the Primary School PE and Sport Premium from £160 million per year to £320 million per year from September 2017 to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles. This funding will enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer.
Sports Premium Funding Objective:
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools which will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.
It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:
The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
Increased participation in competitive sport
This great opportunity will allow schools to spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sport as well as having the freedom to choose how they do this.
Evidencing the Impact on Primary Sports Premium Funding at Muscliff Primary School
Muscliff Primary School received £10,370 for the 2016/17 academic year.
The planned use of the PE and school sport funding at Muscliff Primary School will be effective in improving and sustaining our high quality PE and sports provision. It will ensure that our pupils become physically literate and benefit from an on-going legacy of enriched sport, exercise and keeping healthy.
