PE and Sport Grant
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and Sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils so they develop healthy lifestyles.
Purpose of Funding
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Manorfield C E Primary School has decided to use the money to:
- Increase pupils’ participation in the sports and physical activities, including a broad range of after school clubs.
- Improve resources to support the development of the subject.
- Provide professional coaching and training for teachers to develop their skills.
- Organise active lunchtime sessions, ensuring pupils have an opportunity to take part in physical activity during the lunch break.
- Organise inter-house sports competitions or tournaments
- Take part in sports competitions, to provide opportunities for team sports.
Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils in Year 1 - 6 as at the annual January Census.
We are required by the government to publish details of how many year 6 pupils can do each of the following:
- Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. (This has been taken to mean 2 lengths of the school pool without putting feet down at all and without only just making it.)
- Use a range of strokes effectively. (This has been interpreted as front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke and/or butterfly and/ or a survival stroke swam in an efficient manner.)
- Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. (This has been assessed as the ability to decide upon a suitable entry to the pool and a decision of what to do once in the water when given a scenario with the need to self-rescue; such as lay on the back for 90 seconds to overcome cold shock; use a flotation device or object in the water to assume the HELP position; tread water; use a recognised survival stroke to swim a short distance to a place of safety.)
