PE and Sport Funding

schooloct023

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games inspired the nation and generated a passion for sports.  The government, wanting to secure a lasting legacy of the games,  introduced a funding programme for schools, initially for two years from September 2013.  This has now been extended to 2020.  This funding is specifically targeted to improve the quality of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

Our principles in use of the funding

Here at Hullavington CE Primary, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. Indeed, we were delighted to have been awarded the PE Quality Mark with Distinction in March 2015.  We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision.

Academic Year 2015-2016

Our allocation this academic year is £8500.

We intend to use this funding to continue our provision of specialist sports coaches working alongside our teachers to further enhance the quality and breadth of our PE Provision.

We have also introduced a morning 'Wake and Shake' session which features different sports skills each day to challenge and inspire our pupils.

Academic Year 2014-2015

Our allocation was £8540. 

We used this funding to employ specialist Sports coaches to work alongside our teachers, improving their skills and confidence in delivering different aspects of the PE curriculum.

Some funding was also allocated to attending local cluster events, to give the children opportunities to compete with others.

A highlight of this year was achieving recognition for our provision, having been awarded a Quality Mark with Distinction for our Physical Education and Sports provision.  "The afPE is delighted to award your school the Quality Mark with Distinction for ‘demonstrating outstanding commitment to improvement in Physical Education and Sport’."
