PE and Sports Premium

PE and Sport Premium Funding - Bottisham Primary School – 2016-2017

The government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. This extra funding is allocated directly to primary headteachers. The funding has been extended until 2020.  Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

 hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
 support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
 provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
 run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
 run sports activities with other schools

School will be held accountable by requiring them to publish by April 2017, on their websites, details of how they spend (or will spend) their PE and sport grant. They must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
This year, Bottisham Primary will be allocated £9450.
We intend to spend the money on ensuring that we can be involved within the Schools Sport Partnership and to use the support from our local secondary school as well as aiming to provide more extra-curricular opportunities for all pupils, to develop CPD as identified by staff, participate in and organise  inter and intra-school competitions and ensure we are well resourced for PE lessons.
