The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games gave us a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy sport. The Government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the Games. Developing an enjoyment of sport and physical activity, and promoting a healthy lifestyle in children from an early age, are vital aspects of that. To support this, the Prime Minister announced in March a cross-Government programme providing significant additional funding for primary schools.
The information below provides details of the Sports Premium Grants Funding awarded to Ibstone CE Primary School for the current academic year and details of how we intend to use it.
We will consider the following things when deciding how best to spend this money:
hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE;
paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport (including providing cover to release teachers)
hiring dance specialists to work with primary teachers as part of the PE curriculum lesson planning
running sports competitions, or increasing participation in the School Games
providing places for pupils in after school and holiday sport clubs
We will not be able to report on Year 6 children's swimming achievements until 2020 when our first cohort of Year 6 children will leave the school.
