P.E. and Sport Premium

In March 2013, the Government announced that all Primary Schools would be receiving a Sport Premium allocation for 2013 to 2016. We are delighted to be in receipt of this funding and to be used to provide, develop and deliver sustainable high quality teaching in school P.E. and sport.  At Claydon Primary School we aim to create a culture that encourages ALL children to be active and enjoy sport and help foster the aspirations of future Olympians and Paralympians. 

The amount received for the Academic year 2015-16 is £9525. 

The amount received for the Academic year 2014-15 is £9660.  

The amount received for the Academic year 2013-14 was £9555.

Our key areas of planned spending for 2016-17 are:

  • to support staff to further develop their skills of teaching P.E. including funding for attendance at courses, team teaching and staff meetings
  • to support the subject leader for P.E. to lead this key subject effectively, including funding for release time for monitoring and staff development, and attending training
  • to support the HLTA to achieve further qualification in the leadership of school sport
  • to enhance the extra-curricular provision for P.E., including funding of sports coaches and training for staff to lead clubs
  • to raise participation in extra-curricular provision and active play, including funding of a MDSA play leader
  • to enhance the participation in competition by the school, including funding for staff to take teams to competitions
  • to provide resources to support P.E., including funding of the replenishment of resources, maintenance checks etc
By investing in staff training and resources, sustainability in improvements in sport participation and attainment will be secured.
