PE and Sport Premium

The Government is providing funding of £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the following 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.

Here at Holy Cross, we truly value sport and the role it plays in promoting good health and well-being. As part of our drive to further enhance our curriculum, we launched an exciting week of "Sports" to share new experiences with children, increase participation and encourage pupils to get moving!

Take a look at how we have engaged our pupils in Sports and Health here at Holy Cross:

Purpose of the funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.  A list of possible uses has been suggested.

Holy Cross Catholic Primary School has decided to use the money to:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers and qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Increase pupils’ participation in sports and physical activities
  • Improve resources to  support the development of the subject
  • Pay for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Increasing participation in sport competitions

 

The impact of the use of the grant for the 2013-2014 has been reviewed and is set out below:
