Following the success of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, the Government provides an additional £150 million per annum (provided jointly by the Departments for Education; Health; and Culture, Media and Sport), and this additional funding is ring-fenced to be spent to improve the provision of physical education and sport in Primary Schools. Schools have the freedom to choose how they do this. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive this funding. Boorley Park Primary School received this funding for the first time in 2020-2021.
The Sports Premium is used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of our pupils, and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
We use the funding we receive to focus on the five key indicators as outlined by the Government and provide additional opportunities for our children to enable them to achieve well in these focus areas:
Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport
We complete a Sports Premium Analysis each year, capturing our key achievements to date and areas for future development. We link this directly to the five key indicators as detailed above.
