What is Primary Physical Education and Sports Premium Funding?

For the past five academic years, the Government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum, in order to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. In 2019 the Government are providing £300 million per annum. The money goes directly to Primary Headteachers, with each school receiving £16,000 plus an extra £10 per child from Year 1-6.

How much funding is available?

During the 2019 to 2020 academic year, Corsham Primary will receive £20,000. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

At Corsham Primary School our aim is to use the Sports Premium Funding to improve the teaching of physical education and to provide a wide range of opportunities for children to be active and develop a lifelong love of physical activity.  We also aim to use the funding in a sustainable manner so that it continues to benefit children at Corsham Primary in years to come and has a lasting legacy.

How will the Sports Premium Funding be used?

Corsham Primary’s objectives are to:

  • identify our strengths and areas for development regarding after school clubs
  • provide teachers with mentoring and coaching sessions linked with the schemes of works that we follow within Corsham Primary School

  • continue to improve and develop staff expertise, confidence and skills

  • promote the use of the resources to aid planning

  • promote and encourage children to participate in health, exercise and PE within class and outside the classroom

  • promote health, exercise and PE through Healthy Heroes program in Year 5

  • raise the level of swimming by Year 6 so pupils can swim 25 metres

  • improve the equipment and resources at both sites

  • work alongside the School Sports Coordinator in collaboration with The Corsham School

  • provide opportunities for children to attend and participate in sporting festivals, tournaments beyond the classroom

  • provide the Key Stage two children with the opportunity to participate in Intra-Sport competitions termly

  • promote and instil a lifelong love of physical activity

  • provide a more able after school club for years 3-6

  • provide opportunities for disadvantaged children through a multi-skills club

How will we measure the impact?

During the academic year we will continue to monitor the progress of all pupils through teacher assessments each term, pupil and staff questionnaires and lesson observations. This will inform future decisions about PE and sport provision at Corsham Primary.
