In March 2013 the Government announced that all Primary Schools would be receiving a Sport Premium allocation for 2013 to 2016. This was then extended until 2017.
The Government have said that Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that we should use the premium to:
develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers
build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
increased participation in competitive sport.
Further information on how we intend to use this premium is shown in the attached documents.
This year, Witnesham Primary School have received £17,040 in PE and Sport Premium funding.

The aspiration of Witnesham Primary School is to improve the quality of P.E. and School Sport provision including increasing participation, providing new opportunities, competitions, developing staff knowledge, engaging pupils in healthy lifestyles and allowing everyone to be 'the best they can be'.
