PE and Sports Premium 2022 - 2023
PRIMARY SPORTS FUNDING 2018
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2018 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
How much do we get?
We received £21389 this year. We participate in district competitions and tournaments through membership of the Sports Collective. We use the Sports Premium Funding to pay for the School Partnership Collective. This is how we propose to continue to use this funding in the future as we can see the difference it is making to our children's P.E education and opportunities offered to them.
At Newtons, we have always been committed to providing children with excellent sporting provision. We are delighted to have received the Gold School Games Kitemark Award to recognise our achievements in promoting physical activities. With the added funding, we aim to build on this further, ensuring that each child experiences the benefits.
19 out of our current 58 Year 6 children can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. 29 children can use a range of strokes effectively and 25 children can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
