PE and Sport

PE at Kells Lane School

At Kells Lane Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum has a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to continue to deliver in-school quality PE sessions.

What is the Primary PE and Sport Premium?

Since 2013 the government has allocated additional money to schools to improve the provision of physical education and sport. This funding is provided by the Department for Education to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children in school. Until July 2017 each school received £8000 plus £5 per pupil, at Kells Lane that has been just under £10,000 a year. A recent announcement suggests that this amount will increase to £16.000 per school with an additional £10 per pupil from September 2017, this will equate to approximately £20,000 per annum for Kells Lane Primary School.

Purpose of the Funding

The Primary PE and Sport Premium money is ring fenced and can only be spent on Physical Education and sport provision in school. Schools are expected to spend the funding on improving and enhancing their provision of physical education and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how to do this.

Possible uses for the funding include: – hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE – new or additional change4life clubs – paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport – providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/Sport – running sport competitions, or increasing participation in school games – buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/Sport – providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.
