PE and Sport Grant allocation
The government has provided additional funding of £150 million each year for 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school. Each school receives £8000, plus £5 per pupil on roll. For this year, our total grant is £8905 (based on 181 children in school). At Burrsville Infant Academy, we pride ourselves on being a happy and healthy place to learn. We’ve developed an action plan to ensure this funding is invested (rather than ‘spent’) to maximise the long term impact of our PE provision for pupils and staff.
Our plan shows how we are investing the money and the way we closely monitor the impact of these initiatives through assessment of children’s skills, staff and pupil feedback, uptake of clubs etc.
Plans in 2014-15 included:
- introducing weekly staff training, co-teaching with Luke from Premier Sports.
- continuing to develop links with the local community by showcasing how much we have learnt in our dance lessons with Kate our choreographer (Premier Sports).
- extending the range of after-school clubs where there is demand – this is particularly for more varied sports such as Hip-hop dance and Cycling Proficiency.
- Skipping day and training for MDA’s.
