PE Funding Lifton Community Primary School 2016-17

The government is providing additional to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school headteachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

PE funding at Lifton School will be used to include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teaching assistants when teaching PE. The school has employed two specialist sports coaches to deliver high quality PE(including swimmimng) to the children and to target less active children and to provide CPD for non teaching staff. This is also part of our plan for continuous school improvement. The cost of this is approximately £3,510 per academic year
  • supporting and engaging  the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs. The school has employed two qualified sports coaches to run a KS1 after school multi sports club and a KS2 after school football/sports club at a cost of £30 per week.
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport. The school will send the PE leader and other staff on relevant courses as part of our continuous improvement of PE provision at the school
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games. The new specialist sports coach and the senior leadership team are working closely together to plan tournaments and sporting events for Lifton School and other local schools in the Tavistock and Launceston learning communities
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport as necessary. The school will purchase a new scheme of work and assessment programme for the new curriculum to be utilised by all staff at a cost of approximately £2,000 and Safety in PE resource book £44
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs which we aspire to take part in at Lifton school throughout the year £ various
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools. Lifton School has paid £815 into ARENA and the school has paid into the Launceston College Primary festivals and tournaments at a cost of £675. This will provide us with a variety of CPD, coaching and sporting opportunities for the pupils
  • to renew school PE equipment, kit and other essential resources and for travel costs to events £958

Accountability

From September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors’ handbook’ and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.

Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure of additional funding and its impact. Please see below for Impact statement to be completed July 2017.
