PE and sport premium funding

Since October 2013, the Government has provided all schools with sports premium funding. This year each school receives £16,000 and then an additional £10 per child in Years 1 to 6.

The Department for Education states its vision for the Primary PE and Sports Premium is for all pupils leaving primary school to become physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

It is expected that schools will see improvements against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and school sport
  4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. increased participation in competitive sport

At Browney Academy we will use our Sports Premium Funding 2019/20 to:

  • Fully participate in local cluster school competitions
  • Increase the provision for children to participate in school clubs, before school, at lunchtime (by training play-ground leaders) and after school
  • Develop PE teaching through the opportunities to observe and team teach with qualified coaches.
  • Develop links to local sports clubs and advertising clubs on the school sports board.
  • Develop children’s understanding of leading a healthy lifestyle through initiatives such as Healthy Week.
  • Encourage all children to participate in sports and recognise their own achievements through regular presentation of certificates and bands for demonstrating determination, respect, team work, passion or self-belief in PE lessons or after school sporting activities.
