Sports Funding

What the PE and Sports Funding Grant is:

Since 2013 the government has provided £150 million of funding for primary schools across the country to spend on Physical Education and sport (this is known as a sport premium). This has been extended into the year 2016-17. The purpose of the funding is to support schools to develop and improve the sport being offered across the curriculum and to aid all pupils to cultivate healthy lifestyles.

This means that Kilmorie will receive an extra £10250 to invest in the development of sports and to support the healthy lifestyles of our pupils.

How the grant is used:

Kilmorie Primary school is committed to ensuring that the primary PE and Sports Premium funding is allocated to high quality, sustainable initiatives in the following areas:

  1. Continued CPD for all staff including
  • Accessing support from sports and PE specialists in order to develop staff knowledge and skills of the subject
  • Time for the PE leader to support teachers’ planning and improve in-school provision
  1. Purchasing of resources to ensure all children are able to access the curriculum and to encourage PE activities throughout the school day(e.g. 5-a- day, pedometers to track and encourage more exercise)
  2. Providing release time for staff to accompany children on inter-school Tournaments in and out of school hours and to oversee/arrange fixtures
  3. To employ Glen Burt, a Lewisham Sports Co-Ordinator to:
  • Inter-school matches – match reports are published on the website
  • Buddy training for all year 6 children – trained children encourage others to participate in lunchtime sporting activities
  • Intra-school competitions – children compete against others in their same year group and winners progress to a final against other schools

Impact of the grant:

As with all areas of the school, the impact of our spending is closely monitored. The sports funding at Kilmorie has:

  1. Ensured that the teachers have increased confidence teaching sports skills and PE
  2. Given the children the opportunity to participate in inter-school competitions
  3. Given teachers access to specialist training
  4. Enabled us to develop and improve PE and Sports provision
