What is Sports Funding?

The Government has provided additional funding to schools since 2013 to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport in primary schools. This funding has been jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and sees money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of Sport and PE for all their children. 


What is the Funding for?
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and Sport in schools, for example to: 

• hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons 
• support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs 
• provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers 
• run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the sports games 
• run sports activities with other schools 


Our aims
We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all.  We encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils. Therefore we ensure that:

• All children benefit regardless of sporting ability 
• Staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development 
• Some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints e.g. swimming 
• We make use of collaborative and partnership working.

2014/15 Sports Funding: How is it being spent? 
In 2014/15 we continued to work with the Langdon School Sports Partnership (SSP) Sports Coaches to provide high quality learning opportunities in PE and school sport. Within the new 2014 curriculum there is a greater focus on competitive sport in KS1 & KS2, and through our collaboration with Langdon SSP, our children have participated in many sports competitions.  We strive to ensure that we include the school values ,such as fair play and respect, in all competitive play.. In KS2 the Sports Funding is also used to provide more opportunities for outdoor and adventurous activities.
