Sports Premium

Sports Premium Funding 2017-18

Since 2013 the Government has provided £150m funding per annum directly to primary schools.  Sport England, the County Sports Partnership Network, the Youth Sport Trust and the Association for Physical Education (afPE) are collaboratively supporting schools in making the most out of the funding.

This funding is ‘ring-fenced’ and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Sports Premium Funding 2016-17

How much Sport Premium did we receive?

This year’s funding will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2016. Bowsland Green Primary School received £9,195.00

What are the aims for BGPS?

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Schools spend their money in different ways according to pupil need. At BGPS, our aims for impact are:

  • To increase the breadth and quality of the curriculum PE in all classes
  • To increase the PE skills of all pupils to enable readiness for secondary school
  • To increase the opportunities of pupils to attend after school clubs
  • To build access for students to sports clubs in the local area and region
  • To invest across the two years of the grant; to enable sustainable practice beyond the 2013-2015 period.

How did we spend our Sports Premium funding?

This year, the school purchased a range of services from a partner company, Progressive Sports.

Progressive Sports Vision – We want young people to be inspired by Physical Education and Sport, to be able to make friends and have life-long memories to cherish. We want children   to have the opportunity to develop a passion for sport by giving them exposure to different sports at an early age. We believe that by giving children more opportunities they will develop more overall.

Sport is a lot more than just a game or a match, it is unique! It teaches young people self-discipline, perseverance, teamwork and it helps to raise self-confidence and self-esteem- it moulds you into who you are, which supports the values here at Bowsland Green. Sport can bring people from all different backgrounds together and help to unite communities, schools and families. It is the glue that can stick us together.

The company provided our children and staff with:

  • High quality sports teaching and learning for all year groups
  • Mentoring to develop positive attitudes and resilience, through sport
  • Intervention to promote positive team working
  • Intervention to develop co-ordination, balance, gross and fine motor skills
  • A range of extended opportunities to provide competition and skills development for all pupils
  • Support and development for subject leadership across the school including leading opportunities to take part in local festivals and competitions

What has the impact been?

Pupils have benefitted from the challenge and breadth opportunities from teaching and learning provided by specialists, improving the quality of experience and achievement in PE and Games. Pupil attitudes have improved and their application and engagement in school life has increased rapidly, allowing them to thrive and make academic progress alongside social and personal development. The support and development of leadership has enabled succession planning for the future in ensuring that high quality sport is an embedded part of school life.
