Sport Premium Grant 2016-17
What is the Sport Premium Grant?
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17 to improve provision of physical education (PE), sport and physical activity in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is being allocated to all primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.
Whetley Academy will receive £10,680 from the Secretary of State for Education. This is to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year to give them the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle.
How will we use the Sport Premium Grant at Whetley Academy?
We will use the funding in the following areas:
- Playground Equipment
- Training staff
- Staff leading after school and lunchtime clubs.
- The remaining amount will be used to part fund a full time and a part time trained specialist PE coach.
What impact will the Sport Premium Grant have for our children?
The funding will increase sport participation particularly in the lunchtime and after school clubs, contributing towards developing a healthy lifestyle.
Our specialist sports coaches will raise the quality of teaching provision which positively impacts attainment of pupils in sports.
Existing high quality playground equipment will be added to provide pupils with challenge to suit different fitness levels and abilities.
