Welcome to Holy Redeemer

Inspiring – Educating – Developing

Sports Funding

The government provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools and have since extended this provision, pledging to provide the funding up to 2020. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.

School Vision for PE and Sport

At Holy Redeemer we strive for every child to be ‘great people, who make a difference in the world’, and this is no different in sport and PE. Our Sports Council have talked to the children in their classes and to staff in school and have written the following vision statement:

“All of us on the Sports Council love PE and sport. We want all the children in our school to enjoy it as much as we do. We want everyone to be fit and healthy and get to play lots of different sports. We want lots of opportunities for our best players to play matches and try to win competitions and lots of chances for everyone to get involved in lots of different sports and find something they love. We are very proud of the achievements of our school in sports and PE. Everyone gets involved and tries their best.’

Accountability

From September 2013, schools are being held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors’ handbook’ and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision. One year on, Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure of additional funding and its impact. Schools are required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.

Increased/Sustained Participation and Success in Sports

To see how PE/Sports participation and success has increased and been sustained since the Sports Premium funding came in, follow the link below:

We have ensured that these improvements are sustainable by investing a proportion of the money in staff training and equipment. We also sign post children to outside provision so as to channel their enthusiasm and school level success. By developing a Sports Council, we have also secured sustainable improvements as they have a remit to monitor and develop the sport and PE in school.

We are also looking at improving children’s overall fitness and last year introduced an additional five minutes of exercise at the end of every playtime, led by a member of staff and the Sports Council, which we have maintained.

We have also developed Young Leader roles whereby Year 6 children take it in turns to go swimming with the Year 2 children and support them in their lessons, and our Sports Council this year planned and ran a whole school curling event.
