Sports Premium at Barley Close


Vision Statement:  Participate, Perform, Progress
At Barley Close Primary School, Physical Education (PE) and Sport play an integral role in making our vision statement a reality for pupils, of all abilities, to achieve their potential and to promote lifelong participation.
PE and Sport provide our children with opportunities to develop the important qualities of self-control, determination, communication, team work and commitment. This should lead to improved concentration, attitude and achievement in all aspects of their personal development.

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of PE and Sport in primary schools.  We are committed to using this funding to enhance our provision of high quality PE, both within and beyond the curriculum and to add to our existing resources.

To support us in achieving this, we are using a proportion of our funding to belong to the Grange School Sports Partnership. This gives us access to greater participation in inter-school competition across a range of sports, specific training for staff, coaching for children, purchasing new resources and promoting physical activity both in and out of school.

The CSET Partnership provides:

·         Competitions – School Games levels 1, 2 and 3

·         Training opportunities for staff

·         High quality sports coaching

·         Curriculum support and developmental opportunities

·         Gifted and Talented and Inclusion opportunities

·         Network support 

·         Resources

·         Fundamental skills programme (delivered through Infant Agility & Y3/Y4 & Y5/6 Athletics Challenges)

·         Best practice

·         Links with National Governing Bodies 

·         OFSTED/Kitemark support

What does this mean for our school?
We will receive £8,000 per annum in addition to £5 per pupil to spend on improving and maintaining high quality P.E. and Sport in school.
Number of pupils =  285 X £5 = £1425 +£8000 = £9425
