St Michael’s School Sport Premium
What is Sport Premium?
Over 3 years ago the Government announced that they will provide funding for support and extend the delivery of PE and sport in Primary Schools throughout the UK. Through the previous success of the Buckingham School Sports Partnership programme and a commitment to ensure continued high standards of delivery in PE and School Sport, there is a desire to continue to provide a coordinated level of support to enhance the delivery of PE and School Sport.
The government funding is provided on the premise that it is only to be spent on sport. The outcome is to improve teaching and learning and give all pupils the opportunity to participate across a broader range of activities. Ofsted have strengthened its coverage of sport within the Inspectors’ Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors are clear about how sport will be assessed in future as part of the overall provision offered by the school.
How much funding do we get?
Every year, each school receives £8000 plus £5 per pupil for pupils in years 1-6. For our school this equates to approximately £8800.
How will it be spent?
The aim of the funding is to improve the quality and breadth of our PE and sporting provision and to meet these criteria we have identified a number of key priorities which include; investing in continual professional development for our staff; increasing the competitive opportunities available to all pupils and working in partnership with other schools.
How will we assess the impact of the funding?
We will carry out regular reviews on progress and audit and assess the need.
