“We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil's physical development and well-being. Through the selection of suitably differentiated tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their starting ability, will enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential.”
At Throckley Primary School we believe PE & Sport play an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better. We have welcomed the Government’s announcement to extend the Sport Premium to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils and we are committed to using this resource for developing high-quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
We are also using the Sport Premium to train our PE Co-ordinator, teaching and support staff so that we have the expertise within school to deliver outstanding PE lessons in all phases of the school. Through the Outer West Learning Trust, we are sharing practice and providing competitions for our pupils. This work within the Trust will continue, even without the extra funding from the Sport Premium.
Sport Premium Grant Funding for 2016-17
Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January. All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.
- Total number or primary aged pupils between the ages of 5-11: 189
- Total amount of Sport Premium Grant we estimate that we will receive: £8,945
What does the Sport Premium mean for Throckley Primary School?
'Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).
At Throckley Primary School we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education/Curricular PE, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport.
