What is PE & Sport Premium and what should it be used for?
PE & Sport Premium is a strand of funding that the government pays to schools. It should be used to fund sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport at the school that go beyond the minimum requirements of the school’s curriculum. It should be used for the benefit of all primary aged pupils to encourage healthy, active lifestyles.
We believe every child deserves the opportunity to take part in extra- curricular activities and competitions whilst gaining a secure understanding of the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
How much PE & Sport Premium will Fonthill Primary Academy Receive?
Schools with more than 17 pupils receive £16,000 per year plus £10 per pupil.
Fonthill Primary Academy’s allocation of PE & Sport Premium for the 2019 - 20 academic year was therefore £17,600. For 2020 - 21 it is £17,780.
What does Fonthill Primary Academy Spend its PE & Sport Premium on?
We believe strongly that high-quality staff are central to outstanding PE and sport provision and to developing and embedding a school culture that promotes healthy and active lifestyles. We have therefore invested in PE and Sports coaches to work alongside our PE Leader and staff to improve and enhance our whole- school PE and sport provision.
We also recognise the importance of widening children's range of experiences so have invested in extra swimming lessons, teaching Y1 children to ride a bike, further links to local clubs and greater participation in clubs.
