Primary - Schools Sports Premium

PE and Sport play are a very important part in the life of DSD and at least two, hour sessions per week, are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum.

All pupils access weekly swimming lessons.

Our vision is to create a culture that encourages all our children to be active and have positive attitudes towards physical activity and healthy lifestyles.

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government have  announced new funding (Sport Premium) for physical education (PE) and sport in Primary Schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at School. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

The new  ‘Sports Premium’ funding for primary schools which was announced on Saturday 16th March 2013 has been designed to help schools respond to the changes in the draft National Curriculum and in response to the 3 year review, by OFSTED, into teaching and learning in Physical Education in primary schools. The following have been outlined as outcomes to be met through the ‘sport premium’ funding:

• Increased opportunities for competitive sport

• Improved quality of teaching and learning in primary Physical Education, including more vagarious exercise in lessons

• Improvements in the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including “increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances levels they are capable of.”

Purpose of funding

We are keen to ensure that the funding is used to ensure that;

  • High Quality Physical Education is delivered to every pupil
  • Teachers become more competent and skilled when considering teaching and learning within Physical Education
  • Pupils access a range of competitive opportunities both within school but also through the Doncaster School Games and Deaf Sports Competitions
  • Provide pupils with high quality coaching in a range of different disciplines
  • Support pupils to become effective and confident leaders
  • Help to develop and engage pupils  through physical activity programme to help support healthy life choices.

How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?
