PE Funding Lifton Community Primary School 2017-18

The government is providing additional funding 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 head teachers.

Background – The primary school sport premium investment goes direct to primary school Head Teachers and is designed to support improvements in the quality and depth of PE and school sport. In 2017/18 the amount schools receive each year has doubled.

Key Indicators – The Department for Education vision is that all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. The objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport that delivers high quality provision of a balanced and holistic PE and school sport offer. There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

Increased participation in competitive sport

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:

  • employing specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teaching assistants when teaching PE. The school has employed three specialist sports coaches to deliver high quality PE (including swimming) to the children to provide CPD for non-teaching staff. This is also part of our plan for continuous school improvement. The cost of this is approximately £6,640 per academic year.
  • employing two qualified sports coaches to run a variety of KS1 and KS2 sports clubs throughout the year at a cost of £30 per week. In addition to this, Plymouth Argyle will provide taster football sessions with all children throughout the school and by the end of the year all children will have taken part in cricket coaching.
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport. The school will send the PE leader and other staff on relevant courses and the ARENA sports conference 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 the National Maths of the Day programme at a cost of £495 which links PE to maths using an outdoor learning approach
  • 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 £450 into ARENA and the school has paid into the Launceston College Primary festivals and tournaments at a cost of £695. 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 £700.The school is planning to purchase a traverse wall for the playground to be utilised in PE lessons and play times

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.
