The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum from 2013 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 – will be allocated to primary schools.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Each primary school has now been allocated a lump sum of £16000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.
We want to ensure that this money is used to enable ALL our pupils to have increased opportunities to participate in sport, to attain well and reach their full potential.
As well as promoting team work, co-operation and collaboration, we also want to promote a healthy approach to competition. All of which are essential for participation and enjoyment throughout their lives.
How will the sports premium be spent and who will benefit?
At our school we believe that the money should be used so that:
We have a history of sporting success particularly in cross country and water polo and we have always been keen to emphasise the importance of physical exercise and healthy lifestyles. This funding allows us to increase provision, expertise and participation
Primary Sports Expenditure
The Sports premium for 2019-20 is being used to support the following initiatives:
We have bought in the services of Sports Development workers to work in school for 3 afternoons a week. This also includes 2 after school clubs and a lunchtime club. The specialists deliver PE lessons alongside our staff, offering high quality PE lessons for the children and sharing good practice through modelling the activities. Our staff are able to build up a bank of skills and knowledge. Our Reception and Key Stage 1 children take part in the Celebration of Dance event at the Queen Elizabeth Hall where they showcase their dancing skills on stage to a large audience.
We train our Year 5 and 6s to become Young Leaders so they can organise activities at lunchtimes for our younger children.
We send two pupils on Health Champions training 3 times a year. They then deliver whole school assemblies on the themes and try out different activities with the children. We pay for a teaching assistant to escort them to the venues.
Dovestone Learning Partnership Calendar of Events
We are setting up a calendar of events and competitions with the schools in the partnership. Our children have the opportunity to participate in competitive sport throughout the year locally.
Oldham School Sport Partnership
We have joined this partnership so we can continue to participate in the schools cross country events. Key Stage 1 attend the Gruffalo Trail and Reception take part in balance bike training. Our children also take part in taster sessions for different sports.
We employ one of our teaching assistants to co-ordinate our sports competitions and activities and attend the after school clubs.
Reception and Key Stage 1 have a weekly Forest School session to promote the children’s wellbeing using the outdoors.

We hold a gardening club to promote healthy eating and lifestyles. This was initially started last academic year but we want to continue to develop this.
