PE & Sport Premium

What is PE and Sport Premium?

Since September 2013, the government has been providing additional funding of £150 million (per annum) for Physical Education (PE), to improve provision of PE and sport within primary phase schools.This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census.

Impact of 2015-2016 Spending

At Foulds we provide opportunities for children to lead healthy active lives through an inspiring, high quality curriculum, enabling children to fulfil their full potential. We have used our sports premium money to improve our PE resources at school, further train our staff and fund additional opportunities for more of our pupils to access clubs, training, new sports and tournaments.

We have had positive parental and pupil feedback about clubs, competitions and curriculum PE in parent surveys and in feedback from children about their learning at school. Yet again we have been able to take children to the Barnet Dance Festival, gymnastics competitions, football competitions from Yr 1-6, QuadKids Athletics, Sportshall Athletics, tag rugby, cricket and interschool athletics at Allianz Park. We have also been awarded the Silver Sainsbury’s School Games Mark again for our commitment to, and development of PE, school sports clubs and competitions. We are proud to be able to prove that the sports premium money, coupled with the hard work of the PE subject leaders and staff, has ensured that our young people have access to a wide breadth of sports including tag rugby, cricket, football, netball, gymnastics, dance, cycling and multi sports. Furthermore, we are committed to ensuring that all children, irrespective of gender, race, colour, religion, language or ability, gain equal access to the curriculum by identifying and overcoming possible barriers to participation and attainment in PE. We have continued to work on improving the range of sporting options we offer to cater for all at Foulds including more football for girls and a new multi sports club aimed at helping children find an interest in sports by trying new things.

The planned use of the PE and school sport funding at Foulds has been and will continue to be extremely effective in improving and sustaining high quality PE and sports provision. Our staff are increasingly more confident in their ability to teach and support other staff in delivering quality PE and our school now has better quality equipment which will last and will vastly improve PE lessons. We will be able to sustain these improvements as we have chosen high quality and robust equipment and invested in skills that can be passed on to others to future proof our PE provision.
