P.E. and Sports Premium

The PE and School Sport Funding

In June 2013 the Government announced the allocation of £150million per annum. The funding has been allocated to Primary Schools to “improve the quality and breadth of Physical Education and Sport Provision, including increasing participation so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.” The PE and School Sport Premium is part of a joint strategy supported and funded by the Department for Education (DfE), Department for Health (DfH) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

Bousfield was allocated £19,470 for the academic year 2019–2020. This money has been used specifically to help fund a PE Instructor to work alongside teachers and a Dance teacher.

At Bousfield, we are committed to providing high quality PE and sport to all children. We also recognise the significant impact PE and sport can have on a child’s health, self-esteem and consequently on their passion to learn.

Aside from activities funded through this grant, the school has expanded sports provision significantly during the past few years.

The following targets have been identified to improve the quality of PE at Bousfield. Some of the sports funding will be used to support these targets

  1. To increase the number of children in Years 5 & 6 who compete in competitive sport
  2. To increase the fitness levels of all children
  3. To improve subject knowledge of class teachers through working alongside a PE specialist
  4. To provide new sporting equipment
