What it is...
The government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school.
How we are using it at Middleton
We have used the funding to ensure that children have the most qualified teachers and instructors during their P.E. lessons. This has included buying in training and support for teachers from our local sports partnership. Some of the funding has been used to increase the range of extra-curricular activities and subsidised or funded a number of these clubs.
We have used part of our sport premium funding to create the Jack Hunt School Sports Partnership.
This is group of 8 local primary schools and a partner secondary school working in collaboration to have a ‘joined up’ approach to improving the provision for PE and Sport in all of our schools. Please access the links below for the detailed action plan.
