Information on PE Grant
Since October 2013 we have been privileged to receive a PE grant from the government of £18,985, so far. The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The Government is spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years from 2013 to 2016.
As a result of receiving this grant, we have established a clear vision for PE provision across the federation: to raise the profile of physical activity for all in school; to develop staff and resources so that we offer high-quality, inspiring learning opportunities for all children and families to participate fully and enthusiastically in physical activity and sport.
To date, this consists of the provision of a comprehensive CPD timetable for all teaching staff, investment in a corporate staff PE kit, and the use of working parties to raise the profile and importance of sport amongst all of our staff, who in turn will then provide high quality teaching and learning for our pupils.
Pupils have already benefitted from a wide range of sports clubs, such as multi-skills, football, hockey and basketball, some of which have been fully funded and some partially funded by the grant, and this will continue throughout the academic year. We have invested in high quality equipment and introduced new sports into the curriculum, ensuring that there are more opportunities for pupils to demonstrate and celebrate their wide range of skills. We are currently developing and improving the physical environment, allowing us to provide a range of sporting activities on the field, MUGA and yards. We have established great working relationships with external agencies, such as Newcastle United FC and Sport Northumbria, and we will continue to strengthen and build upon these relationships in the future to ensure that all our pupils have access to a high quality sports programme.
Our long term goal, as a federation, is to invest in establishing a successful competitive sports programme, which could include a federation bus. We will continue to raise the profile of sport throughout the federation and community, including opportunities for family sports events, health and wellbeing workshops and parent coaches to support our sports provision.
