PE & Sports Grant

 

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 – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.

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 schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this. A list of possible uses has been suggested.

Scientia Academy has decided to use the money to:

  • employ specialist PE instructors to work alongside our teachers when teaching PE in order to strengthen teaching and learning in this subject across school
  • support and engage the least active children in physical activities
  • provide professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • increase pupils’ participation in the sports and physical activities
  • provide pupils with after school sports clubs
  • improve resources to support the development of the subject

The impact of the use of the grant will be reviewed at the end of the year.

Impact & Review

Between the Sports Coach and teaching staff a higher quality of P.E. lessons are evident. Extra coaching has supported staff to be more confident with planning and structuring lessons and also use of terminology. Staff are demonstrating a wider knowledge of certain skills within the curriculum. This has been transferred to the planning for P.E. & Sports.

There has been really good progress in the development of participation in extra- curricular activities since September. The afterschool football club is developing well and the children have shown great enthusiasm and commitment. The new Gymnastics club has also encouraged more to take part.

Wider lunchtime activities have also begun with Burton Albion and our Sports Coach. This has enabled us to offer a range of sporting activities including dance, which has enthused boys and girls. There are adult led activities and equipment at lunchtime, which means that there is a wider range of activities available for the children.

All activities during lunchtime and afterschool are reviewed on a termly basis and the inclusion and participation of both girls and boys in all activities are fundamental in our strategy.
