Sport Premium 2017-18

In previous years the government has provided £150 million of ‘Sport Premium’ funding per annum (academic year) to primary schools to support the delivery of PE & School Sport. The funding is ring fenced to ensure it can only be spent of PE and sport provision. This has been doubled for 2017/18. Whilst we do not yet have confirmation, we are expecting the total to be £16650 for 2017/18. Below are our plans for spending this.

School Sports Partnership

Maintain participation in the School Sports Partnership.

  • A PE Specialist engaged to positively impact on PE and School Sport at Great Ouseburn 
  • Running sport competitions and increasing pupils’ participation in Level 2 School Games

Invest in the staff

  • Fund Professional Development opportunities for teachers in PE and School Sport. Specialist coaches supporting PE lessons in selected classes (based on staff confidence/expertise levels) enabling staff to use ideas/skills from the CPD sessions.
  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with staff when teaching PE, as well as leading after school clubs. 
  • A range of extra-curricular clubs run by staff across the school year to promote Healthy living. New clubs included: Football and Hockey
  • Ensure that challenge is evident in PE lessons as staff are moving the learning on quickly, providing challenge to the most able.

Plan for sustainability

  • Develop opportunities for children to be inspired in the PE curriculum. 
  • New resources/ Visitors to school for workshops/ Trips.
  • Develop OAA (Outdoor and Adventure activities) into the timetable through Forest School activities (including orienteering) and residential trips.
