Sports Premium 2016-17

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 to provide new, substantial primary school funding. This 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 of their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

What is the funding for?

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.

Possible uses for the funding could be:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • new or addition Change4Life sports clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for CPD in development in PE/sport
  • running sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs

 

How will we be spending the Sports Funding at Brackenhill, and who will benefit?

At Brackenhill, the governors, Senior Leadership Team and Teaching staff all agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit, regardless of sporting ability; that all children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments and competitions with other schools; that children have access to a varied range of sports and activities; that staff have access to training opportunities and CPD.

 

 

 

In the academic year 2016-2017 we have been allocated £9,790. The table below illustrates how we have spent the funding to improve the provision of sport and PE at Brackenhill.
