Sport Premium Funding Report 2017-18
Prince Avenue received £19,410 in Sports Premium Funding from the Department of Education for 2017-18
Purpose of funding:
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this
This means that the premium should be used to:
- Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers
- Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- The profile of PE and sport is 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
