The PE and sports premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, and in the 2018 to 2019 academic year, encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Meadowbank uses the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport that we offer. In the 2018/19 academic year we will receive £19,610.
The funding should be used used to:
- develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that your school already offers
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
For example, funding can be used to:
- provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively and embed physical activity across your school
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
- introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
- support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
- enter or run more sport competitions
- partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
- increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
- raise attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2
- embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching
