Sport Premium funding, also known as Olympic Legacy funding, for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the government in March 2013. The funding is only to be spent on PE and sport, and will go 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 after-school or weekend competitions.
For the school year 2018-2019, here at Milton Road Primary School we will be receiving £19,550, which, in accordance with DfE guidance, we will continue to channel directly into developing the provision of high quality Sports throughout the school.
This year we are focusing on raising the levels of activity of ALL the children in the school. This will be achieved through lunchtime support from specialist coaches, the introduction of the Daily Mile and further development of ‘Active Learning’.
We have put together a plan that is based around the academic year September 2018 to July 2019. Below is a breakdown of how this year’s SPG funding will be spent:
£2800 - Chesterton Community College, to provide opportunities for children to participate in competitive sport against local schools. This takes the form of activities, for all year groups including Foundation stage, arranged as festivals with other local schools. There are also after school tournaments organised for cross-country, football, tag rugby, hockey and netball.
£1000 - Cambridge School Sports Partnership, providing training for staff, access to cycle training for KS2 children and organising competitive sports tournaments against other Cambridge schools up to county level.
£11,200 –Premier Sport, to provide lunchtime activities to encourage children including those identified as less active, to participate in sport.

£500 - being spent on releasing the PE subject leader, from teaching duties throughout the year in order to support and monitor in-school provision and also develop a wider network of competitive sports opportunities.
