PE & Sport Premium

 PE and Sport Funding Allocation for Academic year 2018 - 2019 £17,770

Again this year the Government has committed to renewing its package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through this ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is continuing to provide additional funding to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.  

This funding will be ring fenced and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). 

For this academic year the government has maintained the increased amount of sports funding on previous years. The funding formula for this year is explained in the below downloadable document. 

At Probus we are using our funding to enhance PE and Sport via: investment in being part of the Roseland School Sports Partnership; quality professional development; increasing the variety of Tier 2 and Tier 3 competition and providing additional sports opportunities such as seaside water sports for Year 5 & 6.

Sustainability Statement 2018 / 2019
All our PE premium has been deployed into aspects of provision with future sustainability in mind. 
  • The range and frequency of extra-curricular club opportunities has continued to increase and the number of pupils engaging in sport improves year on year
  • Staff confidence to deliver high quality PE lessons has improved
  • Staff knowledge and understanding with regard to skill acquisition and small game preparation (including EY and KS1) has increased
  • The quality of sport across a range of disciplines has improved
  • The breadth of provision has improved and will continue to do so
  • Supervised games at playtimes and lunchtime has improved KS2 behaviour. Children have increased opportunities to develop team building and cooperation skills – they have a highly developed sense of fair play
  • Targeted focus on SEN pupils and regular delivery of real PE has improved gross motor co-ordination and readiness for our most vulnerable pupils and positively impacted on progress and learning outcomes
  • The number of upper Key Stage 2 Sports Leaders has continued to increase year on year.
  • Probus School has maintained the Gold Sainsbury's School games Mark and has achieved the silver award from the Youth Sports Trust.
The use of the money to date has had a significant impact on the quality and sustainability of high quality PE across every phase of our school.
