PE and Sports Funding
The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Barlow Primary School
For the past few years, the Government has provided funding to primary schools in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils receive the funding.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We are held accountable for how we use the additional funding to support pupil progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools receive £500 per pupil.
For the academic year September 2017 to July 2018, we received £16,460 and the reports below show how we have spent this allocation to improve the provision of physical education, sport and active play in our school.
For the academic year September 2018 to July 2019, we will receive £16,460 and we plan to use this money to incorporate the following:
- New EYFS Outdoor area so that our Class 1 children can be active outside all day, every day
- Continue to be part of the Carlton Holy Family cluster, taking part in competitions and events with other schools in our area
- Continue to employ Mrs Hall as our PE Coordinator to deliver quality PE across both classes and lead on improvements across the federation
- Offer our Year 4, 5 & 6 children the opportunity to attend a 3 day residential in West Yorkshire and looking forward a 5 day residential visit to France
- Organise another Healthy Schools Week, focusing on the benefits of a healthy body and a healthy mind
- Help fund active after-school clubs including netball, cookery, table-tennis and football
- Train and develop our Playground Leaders for active, fun playtimes
A full report of how we have spent the money and what impact it has had will be available in the summer term.
Mrs Hall, our Level 5 qualified PE Instructor, leads our PE sessions each week and organises a calendar of events for our pupils to attend at Holy Family School in Carlton. She produces reports at the end of each term, summarising activities and events in school and within the cluster.
School Games Awards:
We achieved the Sainsbury's School Games Silver award in recognition of our efforts to deliver an exciting and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular activity schedule for our pupils.
Pupil Premium Funding
Schools are awarded additional funding, a pupil premium, for:
- Children who have qualified for free school meals at any point in the past six years. The school receives £1320 for each of these children.
- Children who are or have been looked after under local authority care for more than one day. These children are awarded a premium of £2300.
- Children from service families who receive a child pension from the Ministry of Defence. They are awarded £300.
Here are our reports evidencing how much money we have received and how we have spent our Pupil Premium funding for 2017/18 and 2018/19.
