Sports Premium Funding
PE and Sports at Kingstone and Thruxton Primary School
As a school, we believe that every child should leave the school equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits, and for those who relish the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed at their suited and chosen level and discipline.
We often take part in inter and intra schools competitions and tournaments to give children opportunities to experience competition, performance and collaboration.
Sport and physical activity is used to encourage children’s leadership, individual initiative, social skills and team building skills. Children are also encouraged to participate in outdoor adventure; we organise a residential placement each year for years 3 and 4 at a PGL centre, and an outdoor adventure residential alternate years for Years 5 and 6. These experiences are designed to develop children’s independence and team building skills as well as to broaden their experiences.
Each term the school offers a variety of after school clubs which cater for children from Reception to Year 6. We have a very good uptake for these clubs and are expanding this provision all the time!
What is the PE and Sports Premium Funding
In March 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding was to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision. Over the years, the amount of funding given to schools has increased and allows schools a quality investment in inclusive sport. In 2017-18, schools such as Kingstone will receive £16000 plus an additional payment of £10 per eligible pupil.
Allocation 2016-17: £8,720
Allocation 2017-18: £17,390
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthier lifestyles.
