The government is providing additional funding of £150 million each year for 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016, 2017 to 2018 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receives £16,000, and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. At Edgar Sewter Primary, we pride ourselves on being a happy and healthy place to learn.
In our school we are using this funding by working with the Halesworth and Bungay Cluster Partnership to:
1. Bring a PE and sports specialist teacher in to work alongside class teachers in lessons.
i. In this way, our children will gain new skills and experiences and teachers will learn new techniques and knowledge to support best practice in teaching sport and PE.
ii. This will produce higher quality lessons and improved learning for all children.
2. Increase the amount of competition sport in which our children participate. This will help the children to develop:
i. Respect – fair play; knowing one’s own limits; and taking care of one’s health and the environment
ii. Excellence – how to give the best of oneself, on the field of play or in life; taking part; and progressing according to one’s own objectives
iii. Friendship – how, through sport, to understand each other despite any differences
3. Develop additional clubs and activities for children, outside the curriculum to add to the many clubs we have already in school, which we always strive to increase and give a wide variety of extra-curricular learning.
i. We will be using experienced coaches to give the children more sports clubs.
ii. We will arrange a wide variety of different sports to cater for as many children as possible.
