Sports Premium

Sports Premium Funding

St Loys Church of England Primary Academy has long recognised the contribution of PE to the health and wellbeing of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.

We are committed to ensure that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well trained and enthusiastic teachers. Due to the sports funding provided by the government we are rolling out a programme to continue to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a new curriculum based on developing children’s physical literacy skills. Regular staff training opportunities are being provided for teachers and TAs to keep them abreast of new initiatives.

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding (at least £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15) 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 school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. This year each school will receive approxiamately £16,000. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Our use of the funding has included (2013 to 2019):

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • New or additional sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials/resources for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits
