PE Funding Statement 2015/16

Primary PE & Sport Premium Grant

During each academic year, every primary school receives a Primary PE & Sport Premium Grant from the government.  Each school receives a different amount of money depending on the number of children it has.  The money is paid to schools in two instalments; one in the autumn term and one in the summer term.

Primary schools in England are encouraged to use the premium to:

Up-skill teachers to improve the quality of sports lessons
Invest in quality coaching
Provide more opportunities for pupils to take part in inter-school competitions
Offer more after-school clubs
Purchase better equipment
Introduce new and unusual sports
Improve sports teaching for children with special educational needs
Deliver holiday and weekend activities
Boost Change4Life clubs, helping children build a healthier lifestyle.

As well as spending the PE and Sport Premium on specific equipment, teachers and initiatives, we also:

Promote local sports clubs through our newsletter and PE board
Collect Sainsburys Active Kids vouchers, which enables us to attain more equipment for purposeful play and PE and Games lessons
Provide after-school club in bell boating leading to a Bromsgrove and Droitwich schools regatta.
