Sports Premium Funding: Spending 2020-21 & Impact

This Action Plan sits alongside the PE Three I’s and within the overall School Improvement Plan. It is specifically developed to ensure the effective use of the Sports Premium. Factors include:

  • To improve the quality and breadth of P.E. and sporting provision.
  • To increase participation.
  • To ensure all pupils develop healthy lifestyles
  • To ensure all pupils achieve the performance standards they are capable of.

The Department of Education’s vision for P.E. and School Sport Premium is that:

‘All pupils will be physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.’

In order to ensure continued improvement each year and sustainability, evidence of impact is gathered using a variety of methods and plans are reflected upon and evaluated in order to plan for the forthcoming year.

These documents explain how we spend the government's Sports Premium Funding and its impact on the pupils.

SPORT PREMIUM: Outline of planned spend for 2020 - 2021

What is the Sport Premium?

The government is providing additional funding for the academic year 2020 - 2021 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Pencalenick School has received £11000

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

At PencalenickSchool this funding will be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in our school, to develop and or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer, whilst making improvements that will benefit future pupils.  

How are we using the funding to benefit our Pupils?

At Pencalenick School we have allocated the funding in the following ways:

  1. Researching and considering the needs of our pupils and their ‘PE Requirement’, considering the breadth of curriculum and enhancing this so pupils can experience a greater range of physical activity.
  2. Working in partnership with Blus Sky Therapists developing opportunities for our more complex learners, purchasing specialist equipment to enhance the work of the therapists in classrooms and in PE sessions.
