The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This 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 Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil per annum. For Bosvigo School, this meant a grant of £9300 for the 2015/16 academic year.
At Bosvigo, we aim to promote and support healthy lifestyles and place great importance on the physical and emotional wellbeing of our children. We understand the huge role sport and physical activity plays in supporting children’s emotional and physical development and recognise the positive effect sport has on all aspects of school life. The targeted and strategic use of Sport Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.
The purpose of this funding is to ensure improvement in the quality of sport and PE provision for all children (Department for Education, March 2013). At Bosvigo, we use the grant:
