What is the PE and sports premium?
Although the Olympics may be a distant memory, the legacy of the London 2012 continues. To help fund Olympians of the future all primary schools have receive additional PE funding. Binsted received £16,870 for 2019/20 and £16,795 for 2021/22
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:
- hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
- support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
- provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
- run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- run sports activities with other schools
How do we plan to use the new money in 2022/23
We will plan to use some of the money to resource the new physical activity areas, subsidise sporting activities and further training for staff.
Key areas of expenditure this year are:
- Introduction of House Rounders challenge during the summer term
- Ongoing CPD for class teachers through quality coaching in multi-sports; rugby; gymnastics; rounders; cricket; football and swimming
- Support for class teachers with planning and assessment in PE
- A dedicated swimming coach for 6 weeks in the Summer term to give swimming lessons to every child in Year 6 in Alton
- Replacement netball posts, balls and bibs
- Ongoing maintenance of physical climbing frame and timber trail and low level ropes to support the teaching of OAA
- A wide range of additional sporting opportunities for every child, regardless of skill or expertise, through our partnership with Amery Hill and Eggar’s
- Pupil premium children to access Chelsea after school multi-skills club and After school club sessions daily
Across the school we have an increased rate of attendance at Sporting clubs:
The impact of these clubs contributes to the school's low exclusion rate and help improve the mental wellbeing and physical health of the children in our school.
The improved physical activity supports the school's Growth mind set culture. Early internal evidence indicates that their is increased concentration after our after school activities. This Autumn term we have added additional during school morning sessions aimed largely at KS1 to promote physical activity.
