In 2016, primary schools are receiving a Sports Premium to enable PE and sports to be developed. Like the Pupil Premium, information about how this funding is spent must be publicised to the school community and it must be spent on coaching, teaching or training.
Bookwell's Sports Premium payment is £8,000 plus £5 per pupil. This means we will have £9050 to spend.
We are using the funding in two main areas:
We are funding specialist coaches to work with our teaching staff during curriculum time. This means that our pupils will receive high quality coaching in areas such as gym, athletics, football, netball and rugby. This approach will also help us to build the capacity and skills of our teaching staff so that we can ensure there is a long-lasting legacy after the Sports Premium funding has ended.
In the academic year 2015-16 we were allocated £8710. An overview of how this was spent and the resulting impact is detailed in the report below.
