PE & Sports Premium Statement 2015/16

Background - The primary school sport premium is £150 million per annum of new government funding jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Investment will go direct to individual primary school Head Teachers and is designed to support improvements in the quality and depth of PE and school sport in addition to the new curriculum through to 2015/16.

Outcomes - The Department for Education vision is that all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. The objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport that delivers high quality provision of a balanced and holistic PE and school sport offer including;

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport

Funding - Individual schools will receive circa £8000-9000 per annum (depending on the number of pupils) which they can use to support these outcomes through various options including; release of staff for CPD, employing specialists to work alongside teachers, cluster work with other schools and partnerships, transport, equipment, hall and pool hire etc.

The total funding for the academic year

2015/16

£ 8, 430

Accountability & Impact - Schools are required to keep parents informed and publish plans for deployment of premium funding on their website by April of each academic year. Schools will be expected to track pupils to be able to show what improvements have been made and evidence the impact of the sport premium. From September 2013, Ofsted inspectors will assess and report on how effectively this new funding is being used when making the judgement on the quality of the school's leadership and management.

Time 2 Move - 'Time2Move' is the Cornwall Framework for PE and School Sport. It has been produced by a range of key stakeholders here in Cornwall including Head Teachers and subject specialists taking into account the outcomes of the primary sport premium and Ofsted recommendations. For those schools seeking a comprehensive school sport offer it provides a blueprint to develop excellent delivery both within and outside the school gates. As part of this initiative schools are provided with advice and guidance including a self-assessment audit and action planning template (for further information go to www.cornwallsportspartnership.co.uk/pe-and-school-sport). The following table outlines plans for the deployment of the sport premium funding this year set against the ambitions of the framework.
