2014/15 Sports Premium

The government has announced that it is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum from academic years 2013 to 2020, 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 - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

St Helena’s has always had a strong tradition of excellence in sport and P.E. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the whole development of our children and through participation, in a diverse range of activities, our children build and learn more about our key values.

St Helena’s will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil per annum. The funding must be spent on Physical Education and Games and will be surveyed by Ofsted at the end of the academic year.


Use and impact:

Over the first years of the sports premium, we are delighted to have been able to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the following ways;

During 2015/16 our overall aim remains the same, to raise standards in P.E. and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.

Through PE audits, we have identified the need for a more detailed long-term framework to aid and support all teachers in the delivery of PE across the PE curriculum. This academic year we are also altering the delivery of PE, allowing sports specialist to have more time with children to further enhance their skills in a range of sporting activities. Due to this, we have been able to offer children opportunities in Dance, Gymnastics, Hockey, Basketball, Badminton, Tri-Golf, Netball, Football, Volleyball and Tag-Rugby during the autumn and spring terms.

The additional funding has allowed for the continued use of specialist PE teachers, from Skegness Academy, to deliver high quality PE to KS2. This has allowed for smaller groups during PE time, enabling all children to reach their full potential in a safe and stimulating environment. While specialist sports teachers raise the standards in KS2, the funding has allowed for our specialist PE teacher to be released from class to provide KS1 with high intensity engaging activity.
