PE and Sport Premium
The Sports Premium is additional funding from the Government that is allocated directly to primary schools across England to improve the provision of physical education and sport. 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 schools to spend on improving the quality of PE and school sport for all their children.
The additional funding must be spent on improving the provision for physical education and sport. The school will be held to account for how we spend the sport funding. An online document is available with details about how we look to improve the provision of PE and sport at Newton Primary School.
Our school recognises the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details and details of Y6 pupils who can swim 25 metres. Please download report for further details.
Newton Primary School will receive an estimated amount of £20,800 for the 2021/22 school year.
We will spend the Sports Premium funding to make further improvements to the curriculum and opportunities for pupils by:
• Providing additional PE and sport activities to further improve our school offer.
• Participation in a broad range of competitions.
• Providing continuing professional development opportunities for staff through a team teaching approach.
• Purchasing specialist sports equipment and teaching resources to improve the quality of the PE curriculum.
Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding is that it must be used so that all pupils benefit regardless of sporting ability, they are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments with other schools and staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.
