Impact of School Funding PE 2015-2016

 

Physical Education, Sport and Health at St Laurence’s Primary School

 

At St Laurence’s, we recognise the importance of providing a high quality physical education programme within which pupils develop physical competence and confidence and are given opportunities to be physically educated and become physically literate. Within our physical education provision we also aim to promote personal development, health and well-being, enjoyment, success and achievement of all pupils across the whole curriculum and beyond.

 

We are committed to delivering quality PE for every child as well as providing a wide range of enrichment opportunities before and after school.

 

School Sports Grant

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic year 2015/16 to provide new, substantial primary sport funding. 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 aim of this funding is to continue the sporting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic Games with schools being given the freedom to

choose how to spend the money in order to improve PE and sports provision in their school.

 

Full details of the Grant can be accessed through the Department for Education website:

At St Laurence’s, we have chosen to spend the money on ensuring that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments; and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development in order to be able to deliver outstanding teaching in all areas of PE.

2014-2015

 

Over the twelve month period we received £8464 in Sports Grant Funding. We used the bulk of the funding to buy in The Chorley Schools Partnership once again. They had helped us receive an award for being the "Most Successful School in Chorley" in 2013/14 and this year we would like to retain our title. Mr Brooks has also set his sights on winning the award for" Involvement in the most Activities". The remainder was used to provide some additional staffing to cover tournaments and to ensure that no child was prevented from taking part due to financial issues.

 

2013 - 2014

 

We were allocated £8535 which enabled us to buy into the successful Chorley Schools' Sports partnership at the higest rate of £5400. This entitles us to access to trained PE specialists who come into school one afternoon plus after school club each week. In addition other courses and competitions can be accessed both at school at at other venues. These have been accessible all children across the school.

School has qualified for a variety of finals across a range of sports including winning the Lancashire Girls' football tournament in Blackpool.

 

In March 2014 both Y5/6 girls and Y5/6 boys won the Chorley Cross Country event held in Astley Park.

The remainder of the premium has been used to fund some equipment, training for staff and some transportation expenses - though we are very grateful to our parents who cheerfully provide lifts and cheer us on.Good luck to all competing in the 2015 cross country!!!!!!
