Primary School P.E and Sport Funding 2017-2018
Primary School P.E and Sport Funding – Allocation for 2017-2018 £17,730
What is the purpose of the funding?
The Government has made available, to all schools, an annual sum of money that allows them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activities. We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and wellbeing of our children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement. This money presently equates to £16,000 per school per year plus an additional £10 per child. For our school we currently receive £17,730 per academic year.
What is our objective at Oldmixon?
To raise standards and participation in P.E across the school that will enable children to develop a healthy lifestyle and participate in a range of sports to fulfil their potential.
What extra-curricular clubs do we offer?
At Oldmixon, we offer a range of extra-curricular sports activities for children to participate in, which are run by specialist sports coaches and are open to all children across the school. These include: multi-sports, team games, Yoga, Zumba, dance, football, netball, rugby, hockey, basketball, dodgeball, rounders, cricket, athletics, cross-country and tennis. We regularly review our range of clubs to ensure that the range of clubs available is meeting the children’s interests.
What do the children think about the provision at Oldmixon?
We asked the children what they think about the P.E provision since we have employed specialist coaches and they said:
‘P.E is better now because we have specialist coaches’.
‘We learn a greater range of sports now we have specialist coaches’.
‘We get to do half the lesson learning a skill and half the lesson playing a competitive game’.
‘We have good equipment, the MUGA (multi-use games area) and the football pitches to play on’.
‘There are so many different options for after-school clubs and they change every term’.
