Sports Premium 2017

Sports Premium funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. Each school will receive £8000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year.The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

How much pupil premium money does Kehelland School receive?
  • The PE Funding allocation in 2016/17 for Kehelland  CP School is £8,410
‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013)
How will the premium be spent this year?
  •  Membership of the Go Active Sports League  
  •  Coaching in a range of sports new to the children such as fencing etc
  • Swimming subsidy £400.00
  • Minibus training £500- We need two more staff rivers for our minibuses to enable us to get more children to sports events thereby increasing participation
  • Replacing sports equipment £1500 - New permanent football goals, new sets of balls, team kits etc
  •  Resurfacing Playgrounds -  £2200 will provide seed funding for grants to resurface our playgrounds whose increasingly weathered surfaces are coming to the end of their life. (estimated cost £25k)

We are currently preparing a grant application for Sport England for restructuring and resurfacing our playgrounds to provide enhanced opportunities for sport in wet weather.

What impact has the Sports Premium had at Kehelland School?

There has been a marked increase in the quality and frequency of our sports participation and attainment due to extra coaching, increased teacher training  and regular inter school matches and inclusive events

  • Monitoring shows an increase in the quality of PE teaching thanks to the funding
  • Staff are beginning to report improvements in pupils’ physical fitness

How will the improvements will be sustainable in the future? 

The structures set up as part of the CSIA school alliance should be self sustaining when sports premium funding eventually ceases. It is likely that the current committee would continue to exist to co-ordinate events. Staff have greatly benefited from training in may areas of PE and the introduction of a new PE curriculum has embedded improvements at Kehelland.
