Sports & Pupil Premium

Primary PE and Sport Funding

The government provides schools with a ring-fenced budget to improve PE provision for all children. 

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels of which they are capable.

Stower Provost will receive approximately £16,500 during the 2018/19 academic year.

We will be using the sports funding to improve the quality of PE and sport provision in the 
following ways:

  • Providing quality Forest Schools Outdoor Education
  • Providing cover staff to release teachers for professional development and provide opportunities in PE and sport
  • Buying into GASP SSCO (School Sports Coordinator) provision to enable a wide range of inter-school sporting activities and staff training opportunities
  • Supporting regular sport tournaments, festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages: Yeovil Area Athletics, North Dorset netball and football tournaments, to name a few
  • Refurbishing outdoor space to enhance the provision of PE
  • Purchasing specialist equipment and teaching resources
  • Providing additional support to maximise pupil well-being

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals , those looked after by the local authority or adopted children,  and the children of armed service personnel.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used and the impact of the funding on pupil progress.

Principles
At Stower Provost we aim to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils. Quality first teaching, with good differentiation, is the first step in fulfilling those needs. Pupils who need more support (or more challenge) will have TA support in class or will be withdrawn for small group activities with a teacher or TA or 1:1 teaching.

Equality and inclusion are at the heart of our school and we aim to ensure that we meet the needs of all our learners at every opportunity.
