Primary PE and sport premium 2019- 2020

Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium in the academic year 2020 to 2021, including:

  • schools maintained by the local authority
  • academies and free schools
  • special schools (for children with special educational needs or disabilities)
  • non-maintained special schools (schools for children with special educational needs that the Secretary of State for Education has approved under section 342 of the Education Act 1996)
  • city technology colleges (CTCs)
  • pupil referral units (PRUs provide education for children who can’t go to a mainstream school)
  • general hospitals

Funding for the PE and sport premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

Funding for 2020 to 2021

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

How to use the PE and sport premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, you can use your funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

You should not use your funding to:

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – these should come out of your core staffing budgets
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)

PE and sport premium at Tor School Primary PRU 2020-2021

Our allocated fund for the recent academic years is £6,000

We have 3 main priorities for our sport premium in 2020-2021:-

  • To deliver a varied PE curriculum, allowing professional forest school leaders to engage with pupils and offer expertise and guidance to the school staff
  • To purchase equipment that can enhance play and lunchtime sessions by introducing and developing activities. This will encourage pupils to become involved and active.
  • To purchase specific equipment that will allow us to introduce new sports

2019-20 sports premium allocated spending

Outdoor Play equipment- £252.00

Climbing wall (introduce a new sport to school) £400.00

Dance (introduce a new sport to school) £294.00

Total amount received- £6,000

Total spend to date – £946.00

Amount remaining- £5,053

Allocated for:

  • Specialist playground flooring
  • Forest School sessions – we have the potential to acquire a piece of land adjacent to Tor School, which will allow us to use the remaining grant to develop our own forest school and train primary teachers to deliver these sessions.

Using the premium in this way will help us to access activities through Forest School which will focus particularly on collaborative work and social skills.

It will also allow pupils to build on their confidence, self-esteem, agility, balance, strength and many other basic movements and techniques.

Through purchasing outdoor play equipment we will be able to offer a variety of activities, including basketball and balance boards that should enthuse the pupils and encourage them to have more active breaks.

Through introducing a climbing wall we are looking to develop better co-ordination, strength and mobility skills, alongside using a trampoline as an activity too. This will be a sport/ activity that we can use as part of our P.E curriculum, and break times.

We aim to develop dance as part of the primary curriculum alongside music. Not only will we be offering national curriculum skills but also a therapeutic approach to meet the children’s needs.
