Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE and sport that they offer.
This means that you should use the Primary PE and Sports 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
Under the Ofsted Schools Inspection Framework, Inspectors will assess how effectively leaders use the Primary PE and Sport Premium and measure its impact on outcomes for pupils, and how effectively governors hold them to account for this.
Schools are required to publish details of how they spend this funding as well as on the impact it has on pupils’ PE and sport participation.
On the 31st January we were joined by Laura Samuel. She led an assembly about her role and what inspired her. For those of you who don’t know, Laura is a British track and field athlete who competes in the triple jump. She has a personal best of 14.09 m (46 ft 2 ⁄2 in) for the event, which ranks her third among British women. She was the silver medallist at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and also the 2010 World Junior Championships in Athletics.
On the day, the children also took part in a sponsored fitness circuit to raise money for the school and the athlete. The proceeds help fund the athlete’s expenses and hopefully raise money for PE equipment. As a federation we raised over £2000.
