PE & Sport Premium

For more photographs of sporting activities, have a look in the individual class folders in the PE section.

The Government is committed to improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools and allocates extra funding directly to schools.

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example:

  • By hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teachers during PE lessons.
  • To support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • To provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers.
  • To run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in school games.
  • To run sports activities with other schools.

 

Accountability

Schools are held accountable for the additional funding and are required to publish, on their websites, details of how they spent (or will spend) their PE and Sport Premium funding. They must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.

 

Primary PE and Sport Premium

At Boyne Hill, we believe our children should be aware of what is needed to keep them fit and healthy. We have worked with the local School Sports Partnership for many years and have made PE an integral part of our school curriculum. At Boyne Hill we have made important decisions on how best to spend this money to further enhance our children’s experiences and opportunities including learning about the importance of staying healthy and the social skills learnt by taking part in sport.

The following statements set out how we have spent the money and how we intend to spend it in the following academic year.

2018-19 intentions

  • For this next academic year, we expect to receive £17,190 through the PE and Sport Premium funding and have again opted for the Core package from the School Sports Partnership at a cost of £1,270.00.

This will enable one class to prepare for and attend the Dance Festival and one class to prepare for and attend the Wake-up Shake-up Festival during the Spring/Summer terms. This also provides both Year 1 classes with a block of 5 weeks of specialist dance tuition provided by the Partnership. These are excellent opportunities for the children to experience performing to an audience.

  • Through the core package, KS1 teachers will be able to attend training in different skills/sports: Yoga, Mindfulness and Athletics have been selected, and then share the skills learned with colleagues to maintain effective teaching in KS1. We will continue to upskill the teaching and support staff within the Early Years Foundation Stage through attendance at age appropriate training, as and when it becomes available.

The children will be able to receive effective tuition in a variety of physical education activities which will increase their fitness and stamina and develop skills on which to build in the future.

  • We will fund the entire cost of swimming lessons for our Year 1 and Year 2 children. This amounts to £7,378.

Learning to swim is an essential and potentially life-saving skill to learn from an early age so we value the opportunity to be able to provide this through the PE and Sports Premium funding, at no cost to our parents/carers.

  • We will pay for a FUNdamentals after school club for every child in Key Stage 1 by offering each of the 4 classes, 5 weeks’ worth of free attendance over the course of the year. This will cost £2,000.

Learning the basic skills whilst developing core strength is at the heart of all sports. Every child is included and they will all be able to build on the skills learned as they move through this and future schools.

  • We will include the cost of transport to sporting events/festivals at approximately £500.
  • We hope to replace old equipment storage facilities at a cost of approximately £3,000.
