Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

Since the 2012 Olympic Games in London, primary schools have received additional funding from the Government to improve PE and Sport in school. The funding is provided to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. The focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision outlined above that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

At Eastfield Infant and Nursery School, we strive to deliver the highest quality Physical Education and Sport opportunities for all our children. The Sports Premium funding will enhance the ‘pursuit of excellence in Physical Education and Sport at Eastfield Infant and Nursery School.

We will use the Sports Premium to:

  •        Further develop and add value to the PE and Sport activities we already offer
  •        Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teachers during PE lessons
  •        Introduce new activities or sports to increase participation
  •        Provide existing staff with training or resources to raise standards of teaching and learning in PE and sport
  •        Support the funding of external sports clubs for disadvantaged pupils
  •        Purchase equipment for children to use during break and lunch times

During the Academic Year 2018 – 2019 Eastfield was awarded £17,610.

Impact and how this will be evaluated:

The main impact of the next academic year’s spend is to increase the breadth of activities offered at Eastfield and the quality of PE provision across the whole school. We will again baseline our provision at the beginning of the Autumn Term 2018 and will undertake a full evaluation at the end of the year. This will then inform spending plans for the next academic year.
