PE and Sports Premium


The Government is currently funding schools to support children and improve the quantity, quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in schools. It is anticipated that this funding will continue until 2020.

The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school. The school is required to decide how best to use this money to improve PE and sport provision in line with the government's vision.

 

"Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that you should use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to:

 

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years."

 

Our Primary PE and Sport Funding for 2017-18 equates to a sum of £16,000 plus £10 per eligible pupil (Y1-6), making a total of £16,550

As part of the accountability measures, schools are required to report on how well our current Year 6 pupils are meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum for swimming as follows;

 

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?

75%

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke?

75%

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?

50%

Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements.

Have you used it in this way?

PE and Sports Premium Action Plan

 

Impact of Sports Premium on Pupils' PE and sport participation and attainment to date

Staff knowledge and skills for teaching PE is increasing.

We have made sure that all our children have had the opportunity to participate in competitive inter-school sports.

All our children have had the opportunity to take part in sports events in school.  Some of these are competitive and some participatory, such as 'Run-a Mile' for Sport Relief.

All children are now taking part in 2 hours of taught PE each week.

Last year, Catforth Primary School came 3rd in the Preston inter-schools sports competitions over the year and received a trophy.
