Sports Funding 2013/14

The Government has extended the package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing additional funding to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.

This funding is ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support.

At Bowness we are using our funding to enhance PE and Sport in a number of ways:

Evaluating the school’s current strengths and weaknesses in PE and sport, and implementing plans for improvement

Continuing to subscribe to the Netherhall School Sports’ Partnership. This provides quality coaches in sports such as cricket through the year to different age groups.

Continuing to subscribe to the partnership with the feeder secondary school, the Nelson Thomlinson School. This provides us with access to a range of sports festivals, including football, rugby, cross country, Key Skills. In addition there will be opportunities provided by the Nelson Staff for staff CPD to enhance teaching and learning in PE.

Arranging with the local cluster group, training sessions run by high quality independent PE consultants

Working in partnership with the after school club to extend the involvement in sports activity such as Gymnastics.

Purchasing additional PE equipment, with plans currently to increase the quality of gymnastics matting.

Increased profile of Dance.

Introduction of a Sports’ apprentice  in September 2014, to act as a specialist support for PE lessons.

Any additional funding will enable the school  to:

Pay for transport, pool hire and instruction to ensure that all children from Year 2 onwards are able to access a term’s swimming annually.

Enable the school to access increased sports’ events, as the isolated location mean that transport costs do not pose a barrier to accessing these opportunities
