Sport Premium Overview

Primary School’s Vision Statement:

“living, learning and laughing together”

At Godolphin Primary School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

Sport Premium Grant

Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January each year. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £5 per pupil.

Total no of primary aged pupils between the ages of 5-11(Jan 2015): 97

Total amount of Sport Premium Grant received £8485

What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?

‘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’ (DfE June 2013).

At Godolphin Primary School we have split up the funding into several key areas for consideration

  • Curriculum Delivery
  • Physical Activity (Health & wellbeing)
  • Diverse and Inclusive Curriculum
  • Competitions
  • Leadership, Coaching and Volunteering
  • Community Collaboration
  • Workforce

Background – The primary school sport premium is £150 million per annum of new government funding jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Investment will go direct to individual primary school Head Teachers and is designed to support improvements in the quality and depth of PE and school sport in addition to the new curriculum through to 2016/17.

Outcomes – The Department for Education vision is that all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. The objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport that delivers high quality provision of a balanced and holistic PE and school sport offer including;

  • 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

Funding – Individual schools will receive circa £8000-9000 per annum (depending on the number of pupils) which they can use to support these outcomes through various options including; release of staff for CPD, employing specialists to work alongside teachers, cluster work with other schools and partnerships, transport, equipment, hall and pool hire etc.

The total funding for the academic year 2016/17 £8485

Accountability & Impact – Schools are required to keep parents informed and publish plans for deployment of premium funding on their website by April of each academic year. Schools will be expected to track pupils to be able to show what improvements have been made and evidence the impact of the sport premium. From September 2013, Ofsted inspectors will assess and report on how effectively this new funding is being used when making the judgement on the quality of the school’s leadership and management.
