SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING (SPF) 2018-2019
Over the past six academic years, the Government has provided funding of 150 million per annum for primary schools to improve their provision for Physical Education (PE) and School Sport. The money goes directly to Primary Headteachers, with each school receiving 16,000 plus an extra 10 per child from years 1-6. This money is ring-fenced, meaning it has to be spent solely on PE/School Sport. For the academic year 2018/19, Bulford St Leonard’s will receive £18,110.
At Bulford St Leonard’s Primary School, we have always considered PE to be a hugely important part of the curriculum and we pride ourselves on offering children many opportunities to take part in sport, both during and after school. We currently offer a large range of after-school sports clubs over the course of the year.
Our aim is use the Sports Premium Funding to improve the teaching of physical education and to provide a wide range of opportunities for our children to be active and develop a lifelong love of physical activity. We also aim to use the funding in a sustainable manner so that it continues to benefit children in years to come and has a lasting legacy.
The School aims for 2018/19 that are supported by the SPF are:
To improve the quality of teaching and learning in PE
To increase opportunities for pupils to have more active break and lunchtimes e.g. play/sports equipment, lunch time sports activities.
To increase participation in sporting activities.
Pay for transport for sport festivals
Participate in the Schools Sports Partnership
Provide additional swimming lessons for children in year 6 who have not achieved the required level in swimming by the Summer Term.
