SPORT PREMIUM

 
“Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

But when people leave school, they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. We want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.”

The Government is providing primary school sport funding to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. Funding will be funded through a lump sum for each school and a top up per pupil.

In 2020/21 the school will receive £16,483 in Primary Sports Funding which will contributed to spending on:-

  • Participation in sports competitions in Glossop and the High Peak.

  • Additional Sports provision from our Higher-Level Teaching Assistants to teach 1 hour PE to each class each week and provide lunchtime sports activities three times per week in Key Stage 2. 

  • New Sports equipment for use at break and lunchtimes.

 

2019/20

In 2019/20 the school received £16,825 in Primary Sports Funding which contributed to spending on:-

  • Participation in sports competitions in Glossop and the High Peak.

  • Qualified sports coaches to teach 1 hour PE to each class each week and provide lunchtime sports activities three times per week in Key Stage 2.

  • Provide a Wildlife Assistant to enable pupils to increase physical activity by access to the outside learning environment through planned curricular entitlement and after school clubs.

 

Impact and Monitoring

The involvement of pupils in sports and exercise activities both inside and outside of the school is monitored in the PE assessment and tracking process. In this way we can identify pupils who are not accessing organised sports. Achievements of children in activities outside of school are regularly celebrated in assemblies where parents are invited.
