The Sports Premium was introduced to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles. It is allocated to schools to work with all pupils.
Schools are free to spend the Sports Premium as they see fit, however our approach and vision for our pupils is to ensure that all are offered ‘rich opportunities and memorable experiences’ and that those from poorer socio-economic backgrounds do not suffer barriers which hamper their progress and attainment.
Our decisions on how best to use the Sports Premium are based on the findings of high quality research and publications, including Ofsted’s best practice guides. These have supported our decision on expenditure over the best and most effective use of our Sport Premium Funding.
We believe that: –
- All of our children should and will benefit from the teaching and learning opportunities that Sport Premium funding provides.
- Appropriate provision is made for all pupils belonging to vulnerable groups, including those who are from socially and economically disadvantaged groups.
- Our Sport Premium funding should be spent according to ‘best value’ principles and related to activities which research suggests will make the very best use of the finances available.
- As many children as possible should represent the school in a sporting team.
Brailes C of E Primary have been awarded the School Games gold award for participation in sporting competition during the 2017-18 and 2016-17 academic years, a sustained improvement on the silver award achieved in 2015-16. The school successfully achieved 50% participation in extra-curricular activity, offered a wide range of different sports and opportunities to participate at Level 1 (inter-school) and Level 2 (against other schools), and by entering more than one team in events, plus older pupils helped to run Sports Days and inter-house matches in school.
