What is Sports Premium?


The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new Primary School Sport Funding. The money will go directly to primary schools in order to improve Sport and PE. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be provided to head teachers who will spend the money on improving the quality of sport and PE in school.


Purpose of Funding


Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving the provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for funding include:


-Hiring specialist PE teachers and qualified coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE.

– Implementing Change4Life clubs within school

– Providing new sports clubs which offer new challenges for all children

-Providing CPD opportunities for all staff in schools

– Increased participation in school games

– Providing resources for PE and Sport

– To involve all children in PE and Sport through inclusion support

– Introduction of intervention groups for PE to support children working at different levels of PE and Sport within school.


How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?


Governors and Staff at Hambleton believe that the money should be used to support all children in their PE and sport activities across school. The most able children should be challenged through participation in competition whilst the less able should be provided with opportunities to develop fundamental skills. We want to see children attending local high schools with a positive mind set about PE and Sport and to feel the confidence to pursue sporting clubs at different levels.

Below is a rundown of how we intend to use the sports funding during 2018/2019:


Wyre and Fylde Sports Premium Offer

This premium sports package ensures that we are spending the largest chunk of our money in an effective way. It provides us with the best coaches in the area and allows us to take part in extra competition. The package brings together local PE coordinators to share good practise, organising a yearly conference and CPD events. The package supports the work we already carry out in PE and ensures that we remain up to date with changes to the PE curriculum and funding.


Hiring qualified sports coaches

By joining with the services of Wyre and Fylde Schools Sports Partnership we will benefit from working alongside qualified sports coaches. Coaches will work alongside class teachers from Nursery to Year 6 to enhance the delivery of PE lessons throughout school. The children will develop fundamental skills in the infants and will learn how to develop these in team games in the juniors. In addition to this, teachers will have opportunities to share good practise with the coaches and develop their own skills in leading their own PE sessions. We will ensure that the coaches work alongside newly qualified staff and teaching students to ensure consistency in planning and assessing for PE across school.


Providing places for children in after school clubs

We want all children to take part in after school clubs and already have a large majority of our children taking part in such activities. We want to continue this good work. By training staff through the use of coaches, more teachers and support staff are able to run clubs after school. This is providing further opportunities for children to attend clubs from Foundation Stage to KS2.


Increasing participation in school sport

By working closely with other schools we are developing new ways to increase participation in team games at lunch times. We have spent money on playground leader and playground PALS training for staff and children across school. This will support children in taking part in at least thirty minutes of exercise each day. Children are also learning to be team leaders planning for and organising their own team games. We are also trialling the ‘Golden Mile’ encouraging children to move around our playground at lunch times in order to tally up miles as a class. This has kept our children moving at break times!

We also look forward to introducing Change4Life clubs at lunch times. This will support target children in participating in team games, which are enjoyable and simple to engage with.


Updating equipment

Introduction of playground leaders has meant a need for new equipment. Playground leaders have listed the things needed, which the funding has allowed us to supply. This ensures that children can continue to participate in school sport at break times.


Providing Interventions

Due to staff CPD and increased training through the use of coaches, teaching staff have a better understanding of how to plan for and assess their own PE sessions. As a result, teachers are able to highlight target children who need further support with their fundamental skills. We are therefore providing coaches to work with teachers in PE sessions to run interventions for target children. This will ensure that all children leave KS1 mastering each fundamental skill and children in KS2 can gain extra support in specific skills in order to play team games successfully.


Providing PE sweatshirts for all children

This year to ensure the children have the full 2 hours of PE every week, we have decided that they will come to school in full PE kit for the school day. This means there is no time wasted ‘getting ready.’ For the initial year they will have the PE sweatshirts provided and then on in they will be required to pay for them as part of the school uniform.
