PE AND SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING FOR PRIMARY SCHOOLS

How it affects us at Tower Road!

 

The Government is spending in excess of £450m for the improvement of PE (Physical Education) and Sport in primary schools over three academic years (ie 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16. This funding goes directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving or enhancing the quality of PE and sport for all children.

At Tower Road Academy, we strongly believe in PE and Sport for all and have a high level of participation in all year groups, but with this funding we hope to further improve participation and provide even more opportunities for children to take part in more sport. In the academic year of 2011-12 and 2012-13 we were awarded the Sainsbury’s Bronze Games Mark award. Last year, 2013-14 we obtained the Silver award. So what can we achieve this year 2014-15?

 

At Tower Road we will be spending the funding in various ways. We will pay for

professional development for teachers to improve their teaching of PE, where necessary and courses availability. There will be more variety of clubs on offer made possible by an increase in people delivering the activities. We have always entered numerous sports competitions and festivals and this will continue through buying into the Boston Sports Partnership scheme and with hope this will increase due to new opportunities becoming available through the scheme. The funding will pay for additional sports competitions and the transport to reach the venues, outside of the Sports Partnership calendar of events, as well as funding any additional competitions and festivals that we will host. There will be the purchase of new resources to deliver new clubs and sports. Audits of existing PE/Sports equipment will be carried out and the replacing of worn out or broken equipment undertaken. As always pupils’ sporting ability (at whatever level) is valued in presenting of medals and certificates at Friday whole school Assemblies.
