At Chiltern Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
Primary School’s Sports Funding
Visit http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/adminandfinance/financialmanagement/ b00222858/primary-school-sport-funding for the Department of Education Primary School’s Sports Funding page.
What is the Sports Premium?
The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of the funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
At Chiltern Primary School we will be using the funding to:
Hire specialist qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE
New or additional sport clubs at a reduced cost to parents
Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
Purchase of quality equipment to enable our children to be exposed to a varied range of different sporting activities
Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
