Sports & PE Funding
What it is
The government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport. They have done this by offering each primary school £16,000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school.
How we are using it at Everton Heath Primary School
We have used the funding to ensure that children have the most qualified teachers and instructors during their P.E. lessons. This has included buying in training and support for teachers from our local sports partnership. We have also invested in two external Sports Coaching companies who come into school weekly to help lead lessons alongside school staff. Some of the funding has been used to increase the range of extra-curricular activities and subsidised or funded a number of these clubs.

How the Sports Premium has impacted on pupils' PE and Sport participation and attainment at EHPS
Everton Heath Primary School has used the Sport Funding to bring in a specialist PE coach to work across all Year Groups in the school. In Years 1-5 children have 2 hours of PE weekly where the specialist works alongside teaching staff. This has ensured that high quality PE lessons have been consistently delivered in all year groups.
Non specialist teaching staff have benefited by increasing their knowledge, understanding and confidence to teach PE. This has been achieved via regular observation, team teaching and discussions with the specialist teacher and support with their planning if required
Pupils have benefited from taking part in East Beds School Sports Partnership ( EBSSP ) sporting events and festivals; these include netball, tag rugby and table tennis tournaments, gymnastics and multi skills festivals and athletics events which has involved KS1 and KS2 children. In addition to this there have been friendly sporting fixtures between EBSSP schools.
Other specialist PE coaches run weekly sports clubs after school. These are for Reception, KS 1 and KS 2 pupils and enabled every year group to access extra -curricular activities. These clubs have been well received and supported. Throughout the year they have ran: American Multi-Sports, Taekwondo,Football and Tag-Rugby clubs.
The specialist coaches and EBSSP provide all equipment needed to ensure that all pupils have access to a variety of sports equipment and therefore are able to participate in a greater range of sporting activities. This ensures the skills of all our children are fully developed and improved within a range of sports and PE pursuits.
We aim to ensure these improvements to our participation and teaching of PE are sustained through the high quality training that we have given to our own staff.
