Sport Premium funding was announced by the government in March 2013. The funding is only to be spent on PE and sport, and goes directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from specialist coaching and teacher training to dedicated sports programmes, Change4Life sport clubs and support for competitions.
For the school year 2022-23, here at Milton Road Primary School we received £19,540 , which, in accordance with DfE guidance, we will continue to channel directly into developing the provision of high quality Sports throughout the school. Due to the continuing impact of Lockdown there was also a carry forward of £8000.
This year Sports Premium spending went towards 4 main areas:
1. Purchase of new equipment to vary the provision in PE and in sports clubs.
2. Use of coaches working alongside teachers as the main source of CPD as this has proven in the past to be the most effective type of training.
3. Children taking part in inter school competitions – including those less active, with low self-esteem, and lacking confidence.
4. Updating and adding to playground markings
We have put together a plan for the £19,540 plus carry forward of £12,500 for the academic year September 2023-24.
