Sports Premium

What is Sport Premium?

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools.  The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age the school has. The sport premium is to be used to improve PE provision and sports participation. Schools should strive to make improvements in these five areas:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

At Ludworth Primary, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.

How are we spending our Sport Premium in 2020-2021?

The 2020-2021 Sport Premium funding for Ludworth Primary is £16,660. We have added £6,000 from last year's unspent funding and so the total we have included in this strategy is £22,660.

Sustainability: Here at Ludworth Primary, we have planned to ensure these improvements are sustainable by training staff so that children always access high quality PE lessons. Our initial audit of resources and subsequent restocking and reorganisation, has ensured that there is a systematic approach to maintaining high quality equipment. We have invested in planning resources and teacher training to ensure that PE will always be of a high standard. A systematic approach to in-school competition ensures that sport has a high profile in school.
