What is School Sports Premium?
The government provides funding for every primary school through the Sports Premium. This initiative started back in 2013/14 and funding has been committed until 2020.
The funding is jointly provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funding goes directly into schools budgets and is aimed at improving the quality of sport and PE and increase levels pf physical activity and wellbeing among children.
At Morton Primary School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in children’s physical and social development.
We welcomed the Government’s announcement to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.
We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all of the children at our school.
This financial year our school has received £17110
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Evidencing the Impact details how we spend the School Sports Premium in school and is updated every July at the end of the school year. Below the PE Vision at Morton Primary School and a breakdown of how we intend to spend this School Sports Premium.
Morton Primary School PE Vision
Our vision is for all pupils to leave Morton Primary School being physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
We aim to do this by.
- Increasing participation rates in sporting activities while at the same time contributing to child development by building on and learning more about our key values such as respect, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.
- Developing a broader range of sports and activities offered to pupils.
- Improving partnership work on physical education with other schools and other local partners, including increasing confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
- Extending and developing further opportunities for inter class and across school sport competitions.
- Targeting groups of pupils to help improve their physical development and kick start a healthy active lifestyle.
- Driving school improvement through raising the profile of school sports values within whole school values.
We believe our children are more active; participate in 2 hours of good and outstanding PE lessons; and have increased participation levels in a range of sporting opportunities throughout the day as a result of our spending of School Sports Premium.
Visitors have commented on how happy, safe and active our pupils are at break times.
