Sports Premium

What is the sports premium grant?

The government pledged additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The funding, which is being provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Department of Health and Department of Culture, Media and Sport, will be allocated to primary school head teachers.

In Paget there are 233 children eligible for the sports premium funding.

This leads to a total of £9,165 for the academic year of 2014/15.

This funding will be used to improve the quality of sport in lessons and increase the sporting club opportunities. All children will benefit from the new sporting opportunities.

How we spent the sports funding 2014/15

  • Bought into a wonderful new planning service, which offers exciting new lessons for sports the children may not have yet experienced, such as dodge ball. It supports staff in delivering creative high quality lessons and offers great links to assessment.
  • A percentage of the cost has supported hiring the services of Aspire specialist coaches to deliver high quality PE lessons. This will benefit children from reception through to year six. This funding has allowed us to hire the sports coaches to deliver after school clubs available to both key stage 1 and 2.
  • Taken part in sport competitions, and increased pupils' participation in the School Games and Kingsbury sports partnership.
  • Bought a variety of new sports equipment to aid and enhance teaching of different sports.

Impact of the funding upon Paget 2014/15

  • Raised levels of attainment for each child in PE lessons due to specialist teaching. At the end of the academic year 2015 70% of the 8 classes taught made expected or above expected progress in PE.
  • The school has continued to offer a wider variety of PE and sports to all of our children through after school clubs which has remained popular and has seen an increase in number.
  • Children's enjoyment and understanding of the importance of keeping healthy and fit has continued to develop.
  • Opportunities to take part in competitions have been increased and children have had chances to compete against other children from local schools with the same skills. We attended 6 competitions run by Kingsbury sports partnership with children Key stage 1 and Key stage 2.
