Sport Premium Overview
At Greenfield Primary School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
In physical education, children take part in a wide variety of activities. They learn that being active is fun and that it is important to lead an active lifestyle. We use a skills-based approach as the basis of our PE curriculum using the Real PE programme. All staff have received training on Real PE and this is delivered consistently across school, more recently we have also invested in Real Dance and Real Gym for our indoor PE sessions. Pupils develop the skills taught throughout their time at Greenfield and leave with the skills which are fundamental to so many games and sports.
Specific sports are also offered to children as extra-curricular activities at lunchtimes and after school. These include: football, gymnastics, cricket, handball and netball.
In KS2, in addition to the fundamental skills, pupils also have lessons in swimming and residential trips that provide children with the opportunity to participate in outdoor/adventurous activities
We welcomed the Government’s announcement in 2021 to continue to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
All classes will have 2 PE slots weekly – one indoors and one outdoors and will have opportunity to participate in a range of competitive and non-competitive sports.
This academic year we have chosen to spend our Sports Premium Funding improving our outdoor areas and ensuring children have opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports.
Sport Premium Grant
Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January 2015. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £1000 per pupil. (DfE June 2020). How we spend our money can be seen in the links below for current and previous years.
Maintained schools, including PRUs and general hospitals, do not receive funding directly from DfE. The funding is given to the local authority and then passed on to us.
We give local authorities PE and sport premium funding for maintained schools in 2 separate payments. Local authorities receive:
