PE and Sports Premium

From the 1st September 2013, the Government released extra money to schools to improve the quality and breadth of Sport and PE provision.
This funding, the use of which will be inspected by Ofsted, is to "increase participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of."
We intend that the money is used to ensure long-term impact.  To do this we have invested in staff training and local competitions, as well as purchasing a new scheme of work and equipment for the children.  Newer sports have been introduced, such as fencing and basketball.  Judo was included as an new after-school club.
A particular focus in 2014-15 was on basketball.  The children play and practice each day and our school became the local champions!
St. Bart's entered into an extended agreement with Longbenton Community College for their PE specialists to deliver high quality lessons and coaching for our children.  They also be worked with our staff in their own professional development in PE and Sports.
We are looking at other providers and opportunities to enhance and resources our PE curriculum and extra curricular activities.  Our House System is being used to develop friendly competition and participation within school.  We are also exploring opportunities with other local primaries to establish more sporting competitions.

In 2015-16, significant investment was made in line markings and equipment to develop our external space for PE use.  A new scheme of work was also purchased which provides activities for skills development throughout the school.  In order to increase participation, the cost of PE and sports activities were subsidised and this saw a large uptake in further sporting activities.


Our new site offers many opportunities for further PE and sport provision.  Old and tired PE and sports equipment is being replenished as part of an ongoing programme and we are currently working with St. Stephen's as we develop our shared resources.


Some funding has been carried forward from previous years whilst we assess our new provision.  This means that spending will increase during 2015-16 and 2016-17 whilst any gaps in provision are filled.  Further details will be posted here in due course.
