What is Primary Physical Education and Sports Premium Funding?
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum in order to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is being provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.
How much funding is available?
Funding during each academy year varies. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
At Holland Park Primary our aim is to use the Sports Premium Funding to provide a range of outside agencies to work alongside our teachers. We have had coaches in football, rugby, basketball, dance, cricket, tennis and netball working with the children. We also aim to support and engage all children through arranging additional new and free clubs. The year 6 sailing courses continue to be subsidised. Alongside this the funding will be used to purchase quality assured professional development modules and materials for PE and sport.
How will we measure the impact?
During the academic year we will continue to monitor the progress of all pupils through teacher assessments each term, pupil questionnaires and lesson observations. This will inform future decisions about PE and sport provision at Holland Park Primary.
We have greatly benefited from the premium sports funding and look forward to extending further the range of opportunities and activities that we can offer in the future.
