Sports Premium Funding
What is Sport Premium? Sport Premium is funding allocated to schools by central government.
The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age on roll at the school. Sport Premium is to be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE & Sport provision; increasing participation in PE & Sport and enhancing the skills of teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons.
Mount Pleasant will receive a total of £19,230.00 for the school year 2017/18
At Mount Pleasant primary School, we are committed to providing high quality P.E. and sport to all of our children.
We also recognise the impact that physical activity has on children’s health, self-esteem and their ability and desire to learn:
This school year, we aim to:
- Increase opportunities for all children to participate in a wide range of competitive sports events.
- Provide existing staff with training and resources to ensure high quality lessons are delivered to all children across the whole PE curriculum.
- Continue to provide new sporting equipment.
- Continue to promote a healthy and active life-style.
Approximately £13,000 of the sports premium will be used to build an all-weather path around our school field. This will mean that children can be outdoors more often and will be fantastic for athletics/cross country practice, as well for all children to complete the Daily Mile.
£4,500 for CPD of all teaching staff - Dance Coach and Sport specific Specialist Coach to work with all classes/teachers.
£1,200 for Membership of school sports partnership, which provides opportunities for children to compete in a wide range of organised sports competitions throughout the year. This also includes further CPD through PE/Sports conferences and specialist day courses for PE Co-Ordinator to attend and feed back to rest of staff.
£530.00 for new sports equipment, including 18 new coated floor mats.
