PE and Sports Premium
Schools receive P.E. and sport premium funding based on the number of children they have on roll. At Eastrop, we receive £8000 plus an additional £5 per pupil. This equates to £8830.
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
