PE and Sport Premium Funding
Government PE and Sport Premium Funding
The school has been in receipt of additional government funding specified as 'PE and Sport Premium' since its introduction in September 2013. The Government have recently announced that schools will continue to receive this funding until 2020 with each school in England receiving £8000 plus £5 per child on roll. Schools are free to spend the PE and Sport Premium as they see fit since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for all the pupils within their responsibility. This extra funding must be spent on Physical Education and School Sport. As a school we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding and from April 2014 we are required to publish online information regarding how we have used the Sport’s Premium and the impact it has made. To meet this requirement the following information has been produced which sets out the amount of PE and Sport Premium we will receive and how we intend to use it. We aim to utilise this extra funding to improve all aspects of Physical Activity. These include: maximising pupil progress, increasing participation in sport, professional development of staff and to help all our pupils to develop healthy lifestyles and positive attitudes towards Physical Education.
Some of our Sport Premium funding has been used to employ a teacher from Woodkirk Academy for half a day a week to lead sessions with all year groups and take before school clubs as well as provide CPD opportunities for staff. The same offer has been used by many schools in the Morley area, forming the Woodkirk Primary PE Project. There are regular competitions for children to participate in, covering a range of sports and skills. The most recent newsletter is below. Please also find the links for this term's fixtures and sports clubs. The same information can be found on our PE display near the hall.
