Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Sports at Stocks Green Primary School
At Stocks Green, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
We run a variety of clubs throughout the year, covering a wide range of sports to cater for all children in our school. In the summer the whole school takes part in a Sports Day, which gives the opportunity for children to experience a wide range of fun skill based activities.
At the end of each short term, we run an Intra- School sports event, for all the children to showcase their learning and compete in their house teams at their different levels.
We also take part in numerous local festivals and Inter- School competitions such as: netball, football, cheerleading, dance and athletics. As well as these, we are constantly searching for new sporting activities to engage and stimulate the children.
Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, continue to enter into competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for the past 3 years and this will continue in the current academic year. This provides new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding was provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and saw money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE .
From July 2017, the Department for Education (DfE) has announced some changes to the Primary PE & Sport Premium pages on the Gov.uk website to reflect recent ministerial decisions on the allocation formula for the doubled Primary PE & Sport Premium. At Stocks Green this means that we recieve £17,880.
Purpose of the funding
The purpose of this funding is to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sports that Stocks Green offers. As a result of this funding, we hope to regain our Sainsburys School Games Gold Award.
