PE and Sports Premium

Sports Premium

Primary Schools Sport’s Funding

The government have committed to extend the Primary School Sports scheme by providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers to be spent on raising standards and improving provision of PE and sport in schools.

At Bredbury Green Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. We have always been committed to providing children with a strong program of sporting activities and our Primary School Sport’s Funding is enabling us to continue to extend our provision for all our pupils, ensuring that each child will experience the benefits.

Our current priorities for spending the funding:

  • Develop staff expertise in teaching PE
  • Provide support and training to enable school staff to deliver high quality PE
  • Update sports equipment to provide additional challenge for pupils.
  • Continue to provide quality coaches for working in partnership with class teachers to deliver some PE lessons across the school.
  • Extend our Forest School provision to support children with SEMH difficulties
  • Increase participation in sport through the provision of extra-curricular clubs.
  • Increase participation in inter and intra school competitions and tournaments through membership of our local sports partnership.
  • Increase children’s awareness of how to live a healthy lifestyle.
  • Develop leadership opportunities for pupils.
