What is Sports Premium Funding?
Since 2013, the Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Schools must use this funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer. OFSTED will assess how schools use the funding allocated. 

How much do we receive?
All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
For Dundonald Primary School, this has been approximately £9,000 per year.

Possible uses of the funding include:
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • run sports activities with other schools

Impact

Staff have been released, which has meant that we entered all inter-school competitions throughout the year. Children also had the opportunity to have fair trials and time to train before the competitions. 

Lunchtime playleaders have been used to ensure all children are able to access and enjoy lunchtimes. This has helped to promote healthy lifestyles to all children. Clubs have been run at lunchtime, including girls football and many other seasonal clubs. 

Staff have had the chance to observe, team teach and develop their understanding through the support of specialist MSSP coaches. This has led to teachers and staff feeling more confident in planning and delivering lessons. 

An experienced PE coach has led PE sessions and worked closely with staff to broaden knowledge and skills in various sports. 

A wide number of sports clubs have been offered to children from Reception up to Year 6. Participation of these clubs is good with many clubs being oversubscribed. Clubs are run before school, during lunchtime and after school. 

Staff have been upskilled through attending courses and ongoing professional development.
