Sports Funding

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for the next two academic years.

Impact of Spending 2017-18

The pupils at Dallington are very proud to be involved PE and Sport which is impacting on confidence and self-esteem. The children are keen to celebrate their achievements in assemblies and are on the Hall of Fame. Therefore their increased self-esteem is having an impact on learning across the curriculum.

The will allow the children to participate in 15minutes additional activity daily which will improve concentration in lessons and attitudes to learning will be improved.

TA’s, INA’s and Playground Leaders have wider subject knowledge of promoting physical activity during playtimes and lunchtimes. The impact has been more children now participate in physical activities during these times.

We have continued to support the provision of Top Up Swimming lessons for KS2. We continue to work hard to ensure that all children can swim 25 metres and feel confident and safe in the water.

We have used our links with Heathfield College to offer our children opportunities to compete in events that give them opportunities to refine and enhance their skills. We have increased the number of children who represented the school at level 2 activities/events by ensuring we offer B Teams and encouraging year 3/4 to participate.

We again obtained the GOLD MARK Sports Award.

We have increased the number of children who represented the school at level 2 activities/events with several of our team progressing through to level 3 competitions.

We have redeveloped an area of the school grounds to introduce two new pieces of equipment.

Our team sports kits have been useful with a wider range of children taking part in a wider range of sports.
