Greenleas School Sports Premium Funding
The Sports Premium Grant (SPG) was introduced by the Government in September 2013 as an annual grant which is additional to main school funding, and is therefore ring-fenced for expenditure on the provision of Sport and PE in schools. Schools must spend this funding to make additional and sustainable improvements in the quality of PE and sport activities offered to all pupils in the manner which they deem appropriate.
“At Greenleas we are passionate about providing high quality Physical Education and sports activities for all children in order to promote healthy lifestyles, participation in competitive sport and wellbeing derived from physical activity. To this end we have employed a specialist PE coach since 2007 to teach PE twice a week to all children from YR to Y4, and to offer a variety of before and after school sporting clubs. When we opened our second site in 2013 we employed an additional PE teacher to mirror this excellent provision. Greenleas has been recognized as a Centre of Excellence for PE by the Challenge Partners Quality Assurance Review conducted in February 2014, “The PE lessons observed were graded as outstanding and the impact on the learning and development of PE throughout the school is evident. An analysis of the funding has been carried out confirming that it is being successfully used to raise the profile of PE and improve the physical and mental well-being of the pupils. Healthy life styles are explored and encouraged.”
The SPG funding may not be used for existing PE provision, so at Greenleas it is directed to enrich and enhance our sports curriculum. Use of the SPG funding for the academic year was as follows:
