Sports Funding

Physical education is highly valued at Goathland Primary School and is an important part of our curriculum. We believe it enables children to develop their confidence, acquire self-esteem and improve their social skills. At a time when physical activity appears to be in decline we aim to encourage our pupils to have an active lifestyle through the teaching of sport in a structured, however also fun, manner.
 
What is Sports Premium Funding?
In 2013 the Government provided an additional £150 million to schools per annum  to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, is allocated to primary school head teachers. The funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.  Goathland Primary School has received approximately £8,000 per year, which in 2017/18  increased to approximately £16,000 and continues for 2018/19 at a rate of £16,202


Purpose of Funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:
•    Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE.
•    Supporting and engaging the least active children through new and additional clubs.
•    Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport.
•    Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport.
•    Running sports competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the school games.
•    Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport.
•    Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs.
•    Pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.


Accountability
Since September 2013, schools are held to account for how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted strengthened the coverage of PE and sport within the Inspectors’ handbook and guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed as part of the school’s overall provision.
Schools are required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.


Sustainability
In 2017/18 the Government increased funding.  We hope the Sports Premium will continue; however due to wise allocation of funding, we now have provision for a wide and varied sports curriculum locally.
The Goathland Community Hub provides a venue for sports activities in our village and we can access its’ facilities easily throughout the academic year. We also use the Village Hall
