What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years to provide new and substantial primary and special school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary and special schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year, at Yeoman Park that means around £8110 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Sports Premium at Yeoman Park
Yeoman Park School appreciates the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement. We are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teachers. The Sport Premium funding is allowing us to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a new curriculum based on developing children’s physical skills. Regular staff training opportunities are provided for teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) to keep them abreast of new initiatives.
