How we use the Sport Premium and Funding 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that premium is used to:

  •  develop or add to the PE and sport  activities that school already offers.
  •  make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

Funding may be used for:

  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers.
  • providing existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively.
  • introducing new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport.
  • supporting and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs.
  • running sport competitions.
  • increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games.
  • running sports activities with other schools.

 

Funding is not used for:

  • employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming.

 

At Montbelle, we believe that P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the holistic development of our children and in setting our children up to live their lives in an active and healthy way. Through collaboration and participation, our children develop respect, co-operation and regard for themselves and others.
