Sport Premium at Orchard CofE Primary School

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers.

This funding is ring-fenced funding – only to be spent on PE and sport – will directly to school who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from specialist coaching for schools sport and teacher training for Physical Education to dedicated sports programmes, Change4life sports clubs and for after-school competitions.  During the summer of 2017 the government announced the doubling of this fund.

The purpose of the Sports Premium initiative is to ensure that ‘all pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity.’  Here at Orchard, we will receive approximately £18,000 which we are channelling directly into the provision of sport and PE throughout the school.

What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?
