What is sports funding?

Here is a link to government guidance for schools on how schools could use the funding.

Sharps Copse pupil premium spending for 2017/2018:-

  • The funding will be used to part pay for a specialist sports company to continue to provide quality delivery across the school during curriculum time and providing/arranging extra-curricular opportunities. These sessions are planned, supported and assessed with our curriculum leader.
  • It will also be used to part fund our HLTA to support break time, lunch time and after school clubs
  • Resourcing – some of the PE equipment resourcing is linked to the under developed physical skills highlighted in Year R’s school development plan targets. The current Year 1 and 2 need to continue to develop their muscle strength as well as coordination. Some of the money will be used to purchase specific equipment/resourcing necessary for this. E.g. Dough Gym, additional multi skills equipment, gymnastic balance snakes. It will also part pay for a HLTA to deliver specific physical intervention support as stated above.
  • Year 3/4 swimming and cricket coaching with the Chance to Shine Project will continue.
  • The funding will also be used to pay for affiliation to the Havant and Waterlooville School Sport Partnership competitions to once again give children a wide range of competitive sporting opportunities.
  • Training opportunities for the staff – in-house and off site courses, funding minibus training for drivers and hire costs to attend competitions.
  • One of the biggest issues is children have no appropriate PE kit and therefore we would like to use some monies to provide access to a spare PE kit so that no child misses out on their PE lessons.
