Sports Premium 2013 - 14

What is the Sports Premium?

The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sports provision, including participation, health and wellbeing.

How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

Allocations are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1-6 and those aged 5 in Reception, as recorded in the January census as follows:

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 plus £5 per eligible pupil and schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil.

At Wetheringsett, we received £5,050.00 for the academic year 2013/2014. As of April 2014, a total of £3,709 has been spent.

Details of the spending and impact are outlined below.

What impact has Wetheringsett seen on the pupils’ PE and Sport participation and attainment as a result to ensure all pupils develop healthy lifestyles?

At Wetheringsett we want to see:

  • Increased opportunities for all our pupils to access a wider variety of PE and Sports.
  • Opportunities to develop the competitive element of sports and the skill of sportsmanship.
  • Develop pupil understanding of keeping fit and healthy and ways they can improve their health and fitness.
  • Pupils who are fitter and healthier are motivated to continue to improve.

The children and parents have participated in questionnaires and audits this year.  It is the aim of the school to repeat these, to measure the impact of increased and improved PE/Sport provision in the school.  Initially, the findings showed that the clubs we have provided are important because more children take part in physical activity in school than out of school.  It also provides us with information about what type of provision and when it is provided for the future.  The perception pupil questionnaire has also enabled the PE Co-ordinator to provide and plan for training in curriculum provision and the quality of teaching and assessment.
