Sports Premium Funding

The Government is providing funding of £150 million for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

We believe the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability. We aim to encourage and celebrate a ‘love of sport’ and understanding of the importance of being active and healthy.

Goresbrook School received £8,465 in 2015/16 for Sports Premium Funding.

This money has been used to buy-in the time of professional sports coaches who lead our Physical Education lessons for our Reception and Year 1 classes. Reception have one hour of PE per week. Year 1 have two hours of PE per week.

In addition all children in Reception and Year 1 have the chance to take part in a wide range of professionally run sports clubs every evening which include ballet, football, basketball, gymnastics, music, dance and tennis. Pupil premium children get one paid club per term free. We believe that these clubs enrich the school experience for those who take part.  

The impact of the spending is the uptake numbers for sports clubs (these clubs are at full capacity with approximately 20 children per session) and dedicated, trained PE coaches for EYFS P.E and Year 1 provision. Feedback about the clubs offer and P.E curriculum from parents and children is very positive. Coaches have noted that the skill and ability of the children in P.E and after-school clubs has improved over the course of the sessions. Children also have a greater awareness of the importance of being fit, active and healthy.
