What is the PE and Sport premium?
The PE and Sport Premium is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. The funding is 'ring-fenced' and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The funding is provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, reflecting how the impact of the funding is intended improve pupil outcomes in each of these areas. Schools decide for themselves how the funding is to be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be provided to enhance the provision of PE and Sport within the school. Schools will be held accountable for how the additional funding is used.
The following information provides an overview of how we use the sports funding at Fosse Primary.
Fosse Primary School Sports premium funding 2016/2017
We use our Sports Premium Funding in a variety of ways in order to improve sports provision at Fosse.
Sports Coach: the majority of our expenditure on PE and Sports is spent employing a full time sports specialist coach to ensure that PE and Sport is taught to an expert level at all times. Her annual salary is partially paid by use of the sports fund. Until July 2015 we also employed a junior sports coach to support the development of PE but have elected to use other staff to run sports clubs and teams.
Transport: one of our fundamental issues is ensuring that we are able to transport pupils to and from extended school activities. We are using two mini bus trips each week for football matches and swimming club at a cost of £4,000 Income of £1,440 reduces this to £2,560.
Pool hire: we hire a local pool for swimming club at a cost of £900.
Sports Coaches: coaches have been employed for short periods of time for badminton, ‘chance to shine’ and tri golf at a cost of £400.
Premiership stars programme: In partnership with the premier league and Leicester City football club supporting fundamental movement and physical literacy in the curriculum. Leicester City coaches deliver a programme to Key stage 2 students as well as 2 after school clubs, which helps to fund the programme £2,400
Additional equipment: Replacing PE equipment £200.
CPD: Diploma in education course £995. Much of the time we have managed to bring in free coaching from local teams such as Leicester City FC, Leicester Riders Basketball and Leicester Tigers RFC but we sometimes need to provide cover. This has cost us £600.
Total sports fund expenditure, excluding salaries = £8,055.
We will be ensuring that our use of the Sports Premium Funding is having a positive impact through measuring the increased participation in sports clubs and increased involvement in competitive sport.
