Sports premium spending and impact
- Brunswick Park Sports Premium Spending 2022-2023
- Brunswick Park Sports Premium Impact Report 2021-2022
- Brunswick Park Sports Premium Action Plan 2022-2023
Since March 2013 the government has provided extra funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE & Sport Premium.
For the 2022-2023 school year, this premium is £19,603 and has enabled the school to provide a wealth of opportunities for our children – both as part of the curriculum and beyond. Details about the new Premium grant are below.
The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:
- To increase participation levels in sport at recreational and competitive levels in order to promote healthy and active lifestyles that will be maintained into adolescence.
- To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional development in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, whilst having broader exposure to a range of sports.
- To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialism in the primary sector.
- To ensure schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement.
How do we use this funding at Brunswick Park?
Brunswick Park currently employs a team of sports specialists to oversee the implementation of strategies and funding in order to initiate sustainable school improvement and achieve the objectives above. The team are committed to providing the children with the full breadth of the PE curriculum whilst also providing high quality and inclusive extra curricula opportunities for all. In addition, in line with our approach to all areas of the curriculum, we are conscious that we provide for our most able pupils who also have bespoke opportunities to stretch themselves both in practice and through performances as part of our many teams and in various competitions including sports, dance and gymnastics. Our sports specialists are also on hand to support others’ delivery of the PE curriculum and have lead staff inset in order to improve staff confidence and competence.
These roles include:
- Teaching children in each year group throughout the school in order to develop their skills and physical literacy.
- Offering clubs to increase participation numbers in sporting activities and competitions.
- Training staff to develop confidence and competence with PE teaching, so ensuring that improvements in PE teaching are sustainable and embedded.
- Promoting a healthy lifestyle, for children at school, and working alongside the community so that these healthy behaviours are maintained throughout the rest of their lives.
- Organising a range of school events that encourage children to be more active.
- Leading on the school’s re-accreditation for the Gold School Games Mark Award across the school.
