Sports Fundingenabling our pupils to realise their full potential
At Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy we believe PE & Sports plays an important part in making our vision a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
We welcomed the Government’s announcement from June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve the provision of PE and Sport in primary schools and to increase the amount of money in 2017/2018. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons alongside providing them with greater opportunities in competitions for all our children.
PE and Sport Premium Funding
This is additional funding for schools and the amount is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) at the annual census in January. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil. For Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy this equates to £20,560 per year.
Here at Tinsley Meadows, we are committed to providing high quality PE and Sport opportunities to improve the offer to all children to help them develop healthy and active lifestyles, experience of a wide range of sports as well as offering them the chance to participate in competitive sports. The school will continue to develop its P.E. curriculum, providing a rich, varied and balanced provision with resources enhanced, providing quality staff CPD and high quality teaching and learning for all children.
This is a working document and will change to reflect any further opportunities which might arise that the school feels the children will benefit from in our school.
