Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The funding is allocated to,  'improve the quality and breadth of physical education and sport provision so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.'

During 2014-15, Kingsley has received approximately £9,000 to develop the providion of  PE throughout the school  with the aim to enhance the quality and breadth of our PE provision for Kingsley pupils. At Kingsley we are very proud of our sporting achievements and in the last academic year we have been awarded the Silver School Games Kitemark and Gold Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark.

Detailed below is how the Sport Premium funding has been spent:.

  • £2000 per annum into the local schools sports partnership which allows us to enter local competitions, attend co-ordinator meetings and access staff training.
  • Access and entry to competitions - During the last academic year we have entered 24 competitions, the funding has enabled transport to each event and staff to supervise.
  • Maintaining and enhancing our current initiatives in developing a 'Healthy Active Lifestyle'  including play leaders and midday assistant training.
