At Fulham Primary School PE and Sport plays an important role in developing our children’s body, mind and social life. The ‘Primary Sports Premium’ is the additional money we receive from the government; the intention being to improve staff confidence in teaching PE, get more children involved in physical activities and support them in developing a healthy lifestyle.
Priorities for this year include further widening the variety of school sports clubs; increasing the opportunities for all pupils to represent the school in competition; increasing CPD opportunities for both teaching and support staff; and improving the teaching and assessment of PE across the school.
Allocations for the academic year 2017 to 2018 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2017 census. Schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.
The total Sport Premium amount for this year was: £18,240
We have spent the funding in the following ways:
- Membership of H&FPSSA, providing the school access to inter-school competitions and events in sports including Football, Dance and Dodgeball.
- Staff training and CPD to improve the quality of teaching across the school.
- An external coach to support and upskill staff to improve the teaching of PE.
- Purchase of Primary PE Passport to update planning and improve assessment and tracking of PE and Sports.
- Purchase of new equipment to ensure that teachers are able to teach effectively and that children have access to a wide range of sporting activities in lessons and in the playground, helping them achieve their 30 active minutes each day.
- Year 6 Swimming Booster sessions to ensure that children are reaching the end of Key Stage 2 expectations.
