PE and Sports Premium
Our P.E. and Sports Leader is Laura Chamberlain.
Schools receive P.E. and sports premium funding based on the number of children they have on roll. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that schools should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that they already offer
- make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
For example, schools can use funding to:
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach P.E. and sport more effectively
- introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
- run sport competitions
- increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- run sports activities with other schools
How do we use the Sports Premium?
At Eastrop, we use our PE funding to:
- improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision
- increase participation in PE and sport so that all children develop healthy lifestyles and fulfil their sporting potential
- buy into our local cluster’s schools partnership in which our children attend and play in multisport events
- buy new playground equipment to develop active play at lunch and break times
- give children the opportunity and responsibility to be playground sports leaders
- offer extended sporting opportunities, through after school clubs
- enable our P.E. leader to attend training and share best practice with the staff
