Sports Premium

The Government is providing additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport.

We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Watling View. 

We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all. To raise participation achievement for all pupils we encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sports provision.

Our rationale for the use of this funding is that it must be used so that all primary children benefit regardless of sporting ability. Our initial plans for the use of the funding include: 

  • investment in the professional development of staff (include providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE).
  • setting up and running at least one new after school sports club.
  • supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional sports opportunities during the school day.
  • increasing the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate - running sport competitions, and increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games and inter school competitions with the other SLD schools.
  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules.
  • inviting athletes, dance troops and gymnasts into the school to inspire our children.
  • developing the outdoor and adventurous activities element of the PE curriculum, utilising the school's own grounds and facilities.

Our full plan is attached, and its impact will be reviewed and reported as part of our ongoing process of self-evaluation.
