PE and Sport premium for primary schools

This information can be found by clicking here or by reading the information below.

At Springside, we recognise the impact of PE on the health and well-being of our children and believe that a varied PE curriculum and vast range of extra-curricular opportunities have a positive impact on the children in our school community. We endeavour to give our children opportunities to experience different sporting challenges as they move through the school, and to develop their talents in appropriate competitive formats.

The government’s commitment to provide funding for Primary PE and Sport means that we can now look to further develop and enhance the experience of our children in this area. The funding entitles our school to £8335.  As of September 2017 the sports premium funding has doubled. This means that, in the academic year 2017-18, we received£16,670to develop PE and Sport in our school.

As a school we have been striving to develop our Physical Education programme and with the support of the government funding, improvements are beginning to show.

During the academic year (2016/17) the Sport Premium funding allowed us to provide:

  • Contribution to Swimming in the Community, 15 of our pupils (with basic to more competent swimming ability) attend swimming and are undertaking the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway. (£1,000)
  • Contribution to Specialist Swimming, 8 pupils who are unable to swim (including some pupils who have a fear of water) have developed their confidence enough to swim independently, with a floatation device. (£906)
  • Rebound Therapy equipment including specialist hoist, Rebound Therapy is now in place and undertaken by pupils for whom it is appropriate. (£5,799)
  • Bike Maintenance, All bikes are maintained and available for use by pupils who continue to develop their Gross Motor skills and self confidence in this area. (£450)
  • Sports Coach, The Sports Coach has developed the P.E. Coordinator's development and provided training in using unfamiliar equipment.  These pieces of equipment are now used in lessons. (£180)
