Primary School PE and School Sport Premium Funding
The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that were held in London. In April 2013, the Government announced new funding for physical education (PE) and sport; Austin Farm Academy will receive approximately £20,000 in the 2020-2021 academic year. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
In planning the allocation of this grant, Austin Farm Academy has consulted the following Ofsted documents:
“Beyond 2012 – outstanding physical education for all.”
“Inspecting primary school PE and school sport: new funding.”
Below is a summary of ways in which this funding is allocated at Austin Farm Academy alongside an evaluation of the impact that it has had upon our pupils lifestyles and health and well-being. Please click on the link below to access these documents.
We have identified a number of key priorities that we intend to work upon utilising funding this year. These include:
- Increasing the number of children participating in extra curricular sports clubs
- Identify children in Years 4,5 and 6 for top up sessions in swimming
- Access as many level 2 events through the PSSP as possible to provide opportunities for children of all age groups and abilities to compete
- Provide staff CPD through work with Plymouth Argyle and PSSP specialist teachers
- Purchase a wide range of resources to enable PE is taught to the best of teachers’ abilities
- Purchase resources to track children’s movement through the day
