The aim of the funding is to improve the Physical Education (PE) and Sports offered by primary schools and is provided jointly by various governmental departments. Funding for schools is calculated by the number of children in years 1 to 6. The Sports premium is ‘ring fenced’ which means it can only be spent specifically on PE and sport within the school and must be used to increase the breadth of PE and sports provision and increase participation in PE and sport generally.
From September 2013 schools have been held to account for how they spend their additional ‘ring fenced’ funding. Ofsted have strengthened the coverage of PE and Sport - both schools and inspectors know how sports and PE will be assessed as part of the school’s overall provision.
Schools are required to include details of the provision of PE on their website alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
At Tymberwood Academy we are working hard to increase sporting provision generally and the range of PE opportunities available to our children. We welcome the continuation of the additional funding which allows us to further enhance our provision for developing healthy and active lifestyles and provide additional opportunities for increased participation in sport.
