PE and Sport Premium information

Sport Allocation and Spending Statement

Financial Year 2015/16

Allocated Funds: £8850

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education investment in UK schools. The purpose of this investment is to improve the quality of sport provision and provide children with greater opportunities to engage and compete in sporting activities.

Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded primary schools. Each school will annually receive an £8000 sum in addition to a further £5 per pupil. Schools are free to decide how best this money is spent to improve the quality and breadth of the PE and Games curriculum to encourage children to develop healthy lifestyles and actively partake in a wide range of sports.

The funding is only to be spent on provision of PE and sports in school.

How do we promote positive attitudes towards Physical Education and Healthy Living at Oakfield Primary School?

We believe that it is vital to instil a lifelong passion and understanding of exercise, health and nutrition within the children at our school and we aim to provide children with a wealth of experiences and opportunities in this area. Below are some of the ways in which we as a school have attempted to foster positive attitudes towards PE and healthy living.

  • Entering Rock Challenge Dance Competition
  • Running a wide range of clubs which include football, netball, rounders, cross country, cricket, circuit training and tag rugby.
  • All children have at least 2 hours of timetabled PE a week
  • Annual competitive sports day
