What is Sports Premium?
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary school head teachers and is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. At Tannery Drift this will equate to an annual lump sum of £8,000 plus £5 per pupil
How Tannery Drift utilise this funding
This is an exciting opportunity to enhance our wide PE curriculum and sporting achievements through additional facilities and clubs.
We have highlighted areas where we feel the funding will be most beneficial.
- Continued involvement with the School Sports Partnership which facilitates programmes of coaching for our children and involvement in inter school festivals and competition.
- Professional development of our staff in areas such as gymnastics to further our high quality PE provision.
- Continue to develop a range of extra- curricular sporting activities, giving specific attention to the needs of pupils who find it difficult to access clubs.
- Provide opportunities to heighten physical activity during break and lunch times.
We feel it is extremely important to use this funding wisely as we have always valued our involvement in High Quality PE and School Sport and intend to monitor its impact closely. In this way we wish to encourage our children to develop a healthy lifestyle through sporting experiences and achievements.
