Sports Premium Funding
Holy Trinity Primary School’s Sports Premium Funding
The Government is continuing to provide substantial primary school sport funding for the 2016/17 academic year. This funding sees money going directly to primary schools with the key aim of improving the quality of sport and PE for all children within their schools.
The sports premium funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools, and funding should target areas which will lead to clear outcomes that raise the standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase.
Purpose of Funding
Schools will have to spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and school sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Total Sports Grant Allocated £9707.00
Funding will be spending on:
- Sports coach £7200.00
- Swimming £ 984.00
- Sport coach for Inset Day £500.00
- PE and playground equipment £1023.00
What we have already been doing to ensure effective PE and Sport in school
Since the 2014 school year, we have spent a significant portion of our funding in the following areas:
- Employing an outstanding Specialist PE company to consult with our P.E coordinators, ensuring effective and strategic practices are in place.
- We employed specialist P.E coaches to support teaching; ensuring lessons are of the highest quality.
- We offered termly G&T clubs in football, rugby, gymnastics, athletics and cricket
- Our G&T football players entered regular tournaments, which included many local schools.
- A significant amount of money was spent on lunchtime equipment.
- All children in year 3, 4 and 5 received termly swimming lessons at our local swimming pool.
These developments led to significant improvements in the quality of PE teaching. It has resulted in the pupils achieving prestigious awards within the Borough for example netball and rugby awards. We also have pupils taking part in National rugby and gymnastic teams, international gymnastic teams and the Rio Olympic advert. It has also contributed to the number and variety of extra-curricular sport provision within the school.
How we will be using the additional sports funding in 2016/17
This year we will continue to employ a sports coach to work alongside newly appointed teachers ensuring the quality and provision of P.E is of the highest quality.
Our sports coach will continue to work with G&T pupils and clubs, allowing children to continue to benefit from an elite level of coaching as well as to continue to participate in local tournaments.
We will look to extend the number of competitions we take part in.
We will continue to support the provision of swimming lessons for years 3 to 5.
We will continue to invest in equipment to complement high quality P.E lessons as well as active and engaging lunch time activities.
Finally we will look at training our lunchtime staff to ensure more sports and games are offered at lunchtimes.
