Sports Premium Funding


Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools to increase the quality & breadth of PE & Sport provision, and increase participation in PE & Sport. The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school.  

At Meanwood C of E Primary School, the PE team led by the Head teacher, Helen Sanderson and the PE co-ordinator, Ella Parker have had the responsibility for developing PE and sport and deciding upon the effective use of Sport Premium funding.  Our school already has an excellent reputation within the community for our sport and in particular competing in a vast number of competitions against other schools across the city.  We constantly strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.  We have welcomed this additional funding which has further enhanced our provision and has provided additional opportunities for increased participation.
  • The 20132014 Sport Premium funding for our school was received in two separate payments.  The first payment was £5772.40 and the second payment £3142.60.  The total amount = £8915.00.
The following table shows how Meanwood C of E Primary School has spent the 2013/2014 Sports Premium monies. The priorities have been identified by using the Youth Sport Trust Self Review tool in relation to PE, Sport and Physical Activity as well as looking at the individual needs of the school.

Priorities for 2014-2015:
  1. To implement the new skills based PE National Curriculum we plan to use some of the Sport Premium money (carried forward) to pay for a new scheme of work ‘Real PE’.  This is a whole school resource (Y1-Y6) and involves three days of training for the PE co-ordinator plus a whole school training day which is taking place on 13/02/15. This scheme of work has been developed to give all children the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, sport and life. It will allow all teaching staff to have the opportunity to receive innovative training that is inclusive for all children.  
  2. To track participation levels in all areas of school sport activities.  We are extending our physical activity after school clubs so we have more on offer this year and will monitor attendance and participation by particular groups of children within school e.g. SEN, Pupil Premium children as well as those that represent the school.
  3. To gather quotes to get the top playground marked out.  EP has spoken to LCC who have given us their permission to have work carried out.
  4. To provide a G+T boot camp for all KS2 children in school to attend on a lunchtime club.
   5.  To provide leadership opportunities for children in physical activity sessions           e.g.     cross country club leaders.
   6.  To add a specific sports section to our school website.
