Sports Premium Funding
What it is
The government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school.
From 2017 Schools will be awarded £16000 plus £10 per pupil.
How we are using it at The Meadow
We have used the funding, at The Meadow, to ensure that children have the most qualified teachers and instructors during their P.E. lessons. This has included buying in training and support for teachers from Cambridge United. Some of the funding has been used to fund fully qualified swimming teachers to ensure all of our children can swim 25m by the time they leave us at the end of Year 6. In addition, we have used the money to promote a healthy and active lifestyle through targeted activities. We have also funded or considerably subsidised transport to sports tournaments and cluster events. Please access the link below for further details of how we spent the money last year.
