PE and Sports Premium Funding 2022-23 

What is the PE and Sports Premium? 

The government provides supplementary funding for schools and academies to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport.

This money presently equates to £16,000 per school per year plus an extra £10 per child. For our school this year, Fosse Mead will receive £19,440 in sports premium funding.

At Fosse Mead, we identify the contribution of PE and Sport to the health and well-being of the children. We are firm believers that an innovative and varied PE Curriculum, combined with regular extra-curricular activities, have a positive influence on developing children’s physical literacy resulting in increased levels of concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. We also feel that through effective PE focussed staff CPD pupil experience in PE will improve and increase participation and enjoyment in the subject.

How do we use the Sports Premium Funding? 

At Fosse Mead, we use the PE and Sports Premium in the following ways:

  • Sports Clubs run by Staff
  • CPD Opportunities for Staff
  • Participation in Sporting Events
  • Continuing Links with Local Sports Clubs
  • New Sports Equipment
  • Running of After School Clubs
  • Transport (Companies)
  • Specialist Skipping Coach
  • Sports coaches

Through the effective use of the Sports Premium, we aim to see continued improvements against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  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 physical activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport at school, trust and club levels

As a school, our main aims for this academic year’s funding are to:

  • Provide staff with professional development, appropriate training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across our school
  • Hire qualified sports coaches and PE specialists to work alongside teachers to enhance current opportunities offered to pupils – teachers will learn from coaches the necessary skills to be able to teach these new sports and physical activities effectively
  • Enter more sport competitions and tournaments across TMET
  • Encourage active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • Improve connections with local and city sports teams to create opportunities for our pupils
  • Develop pupil confidence and pride when representing Fosse Mead in competitive sport
  • Embed physical activity into the school day through encouraging active brain breaks and short bursts of physical activity
