PE & Sport Premium

Federation of Holy Trinity CE Schools

Physical Education (PE) & Sport Premium

The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum since academic year 2013/14, to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary schools. In October 2017 the Government confirmed that they would be doubling the amount allocated to each school, which was allocated for the financial year 17/18 and this has again been repeated for 18/19.

 

At The Federation of Holy Trinity CE Schools, we believe that this additional funding provides us with a brilliant opportunity to improve our provision for PE and sport.

 

We already provide many opportunities for participation in sport and PE within the curriculum, through clubs and in the many competitions we enter in the local and wider areas. We encourage wide and inclusive participation and we dedicate time to developing our competition calendar. Over time, we have provided a range of sports such as fly-fishing, golf, VX and Bollywood dancing, alongside more traditional sports; there are options for everyone and opportunities such as karate, cycling and multi-sports are currently on the menu.

 

We aim for wide participation in sport and opportunities for children to try a wide range of different sports for enjoyment as well as to experience involvement in competitive sport. To enhance this, we have proactive links with local sports clubs and many of the children partake in community sporting events. We also hold an annual community sports afternoon where representatives from local clubs provide taster coaching and engagement sessions. 

 

Working alongside Nidderdale High School we have appointed a PE and Sports specialist to work in school 1 day per week. Our teacher, Mr Barrass, works alongside all staff to improve their teaching and learning of PE and sport and their confidence in delivering quality PE. We also use the funding for an additional member of staff in school who raises the profile of sport and is responsible for increasing the amount of time and range of opportunities provided for children to engage in PE and sporting activities.
