Hitherfield Primary School and Children's Centre

PE and Sports Premium



What is the Sports Premium?

The government provided funding of £150 million each year for academic years
2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding.
The funding is jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture
and Media and Sport. Money went directly to primary school headteachers to spend
on improving the quality of sport and P.E; each school received £8,000 plus an extra
£5 per pupil each year for two years - here at Hitherfield this meant we received
£10,085 in 2013-14, £10,702 in 2014-15 and £10,455 in 2015-16. The money was
only spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of the funding

Schools will spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but
they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Examples include additional
sport clubs, equipment to support P.E and hiring specialist P.E teachers/qualified
sport coaches.

At Hitherfield we aim to:

  To raise the standards of physical education in the school
  To develop and improve teachers skills and competence in P.E.
 To widen participation in intra & inter house competitions across the age
 To continue to support and involve the least active children by extending the
 school sports clubs and running a ‘Change4Life club
 To provide opportunities to access a range of different physical activities and

Expenditure for 2015-2016 is broken down as follows:
