The government is providing additional funding for the academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015-2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. Below is an overview of how we have used this funding for the academic year 2013-14, 2014-15 and plan to use it for academic year 2015-16.

PE and Sport Funding 2015-2016 for Henry Cavendish pupils is £10,885

  1. The majority of our funding this academic year has been used to buy into additional Teach Sport schemes which provide extra opportunities for our gifted and talented pupils as well as our pupil premium, as well as a young primary leaders coaching scheme. This has supported our Henry Cavendish learning team by giving staff the opportunity to work with specialist sports teachers and focus on how to facilitate outstanding learning and teaching in PE.
  2. Support for PE curriculum planning.
  3. Balance of money to be used to support additional PE coaching and teacher training.
  4. We have also bought into the Moving Matters competition scheme which allows our children the opportunity to take part in competitions as well as training sessions prior to this. This year already our Year 5 and 6 Girls football team have beaten 21 schools to become the Lambeth champions and are going through to represent Lambeth in the London Schools Girls Football championship.
  5. The PTFA also plan to roll out the same sporting experience programme as last year, where they provide opportunities for all the children at Henry Cavendish to take part in a unique sporting experience during the Summer Term, government funding has been used to support Pupil Premium children in the participation of these activities.
