This is a Government grant that must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of primary aged pupils in Years 1 to 6 (5 to 11 year olds).
How much is allocated to each school?
For 2021-2022, schools have been allocated £16,000 plus £10 per pupil. Halley House School will receive £17,950 for the academic year 2021-2022. The school did not carry forward any funding from 2019-2020 or 2020-2021.
What are the aims of the Primary PE & Sports Premium Funding?
- To ensure that PE provision is of high quality both within the core day and the extended day, including our lunch offer and before/after school clubs
- To improve participation rates in a wider range of sports and PE activities
- To offer a wide range of sports activities
- To develop a love of sport and physical activities
- To promote opportunities for competitive sport and physical activity within school and beyond.
At Halley House School, we believe that a rich PE and sports curriculum directly and positively impacts our pupils’ (and wider community’s) physical and mental health, and a clear focus on physical education, school sport and physical activity is all the more relevant following Covid-related disruptions of the last 2 years. Our curriculum is designed to maximise opportunity for all, ensuring focus groups receive targeted intervention, and pupils enjoy a range of experiences they may not get otherwise.
Following the disruptions during both 2019-2020 and 2020-2021, our PE curriculum is intentionally designed to balance overall fitness development and the acquisition of key skills and knowledge for a range of sports and games. Funding is utilised to broaden and deepen experiences and remove barriers pupils may face. We are committed to the ongoing development of our on-site provision, which has included building works to create a new sports hall during the summer of 2021, and a wide range of community spaces (including sports centres, outdoor ball courts and an Astro pitch at a local secondary school) are extensively utilised across our year groups to raise aspiration and keep our community moving.
