Greenfield Primary Physical Education and Sport Premium Report April 2014
In September 2013, the new sport premium was introduced to every primary school with the aim of improving the quality of PE and school sport provision and the Government has announced it will continue until 2020. Learning, achievement and progress for all children is an important part of our commitment to the use of our Physical Education Sport Premium grant.
Our Mission Statement for PE and school sport premium is to use funding to further support the teaching and delivery of curriculum PE as a whole school approach with staff continuing professional development, alongside expanding the already strong programme of extra curricular activities to ensure pupils, including targeted groups, continue to develop and progress physically, socially, cognitively and emotionally.

Sport premium funding 2013/2014
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- new or additional Change4Life sport clubs
- paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
- providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
- running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
- providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.
Our Governors agree that the money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that children are given the opportunity to try different sports and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development. At Greenfield Primary School, we intend to spend the sports funding during 2013-2014 as follows:-
- Providing a multi-sports clubs every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes with our Si Sports and Premier Sports – children’s coaching organisation. These will take place in the playground so that children will be able to join in and so we can encourage children who perhaps have not enjoyed sport so far or those who have struggled with traditional sports.
- We will also be providing sport coaches to work alongside our teachers every Monday afternoon to develop their PE skills in a variety of different sports. In November and December, they will also be involved in establishing our whole school Greenfield fitness challenge ‘The Golden Mile’ which is an exciting initiative that all children can be involved in. A mile will be measured around the school grounds and children will be able to run, jog or walk this mile during break, lunchtimes and PE lessons. Each class will have Golden Mile co-ordinators who will update their class miles on a wall chart and an interactive log, which parents will be able to access and view their child’s progress. Each class can set their own target for how many miles they aim for, as a class and as individuals. For more information see http://www.premiersport.org/schools/the-golden-mile.
- Multi-sports clubs will be available after school on Mondays for all children. Leaflets are available for these from the school office.
- Jo Tinker of the FA Tesco Skills scheme will work with our children during the Spring Term 2014, developing ball skills, co-ordination and team work. Joe has a wide range of experience working with professional football clubs at Youth level, including Manchester United, Derby County, Northampton Town and Rushden & Diamonds. He has worked widely with schools in Blaby, Oadby and Wigston.
- Throughout the year, these activities will be delivered to different classes so all children will benefit from specialist coaching.
- The opportunities provided by this school funding will be complemented by our own clubs and activities – a list of these is available on our Sports page.
- We will continue participate in Bikeability accredited cycle training, during which our children will work in the playground and then cycle on the road with a helper.
- Our Year 3, 4 and 5 children will continue to swim for a term on Wednesdays as part of their PE curriculum.
- In November, our children will be able to work with an after-school club provided by ‘Go Active Now!’ a Sports, Dance and Drama company that use these activities to develop children’s leadership, team building and communication skills.
- We are also looking to use this funding to work with individual children to develop and extend their fitness, leadership and team building / communication skills as part of our sport leaders programme.
