Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual schools census in January 2013. All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.
Purpose of funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
· hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
· new or additional Change4Life sport clubs
· paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
· providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
· running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
· buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
· providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.
Schools will be held to account for how they spend the sport funding. Ofsted will strengthen its coverage of sport and PE within the Inspectors Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the schools overall provision offered. Schools will be required to include details about their sporting provision on their school website, alongside their curriculum details, so parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
Schools will be able to draw on information on effective practice taken from case studies provided by the very best schools. One year on, Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure and its impact.

How will we be spending our Sports Premium allocation?
At Clayton Village Primary school we value the need and impact quality PE has on our pupils. Allowing the children to strive to do their best and learn integral life skills through a physically challenging environment has seen us come together as a school and discuss our intentions of the Sports Premium together. We decided that P.E staff would have access to quality CPD and planning materials in order to aid the delivery of P.E itself alongside quality planning. A wide range of pupils with various sporting abilities will be involved with numerous sporting competitions and extracurricular opportunities. We will also be looking to widen the portfolio of sports we can offer by buying additional equipment to aid differentiation and to ensure the best quality P.E is being offered with the appropriate and relative equipment. The intended outcome of the aforementioned is that we will have a highly skilled workforce in the department who have both competence and confidence when delivering a wide portfolio of sporting activities alongside the national curriculum. We also aim to create those positive memories in P.E to maintain pupils’ enthusiasm and involvement regards PE both in school and extracurricular.
