PE and Sport Premium Funding

The government provides additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary school headteachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of Michael Drayton Junior School. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others. 

We are therefore delighted to be able to use the sports premium funding to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the following ways; 

  • •    To increase participation levels in after school activities and competitive sport,  promoting healthy lifestyles  
  • •    To fund specialist Sports Coaches to deliver weekly games sessions to all pupils 
  • •    To provide quality assured professional development opportunities for teachers, enabling quality teaching and learning for all children 
  • •    To fund a PE Technician to assist in the delivery of PE and lead Games lessons and After School Sports Clubs.
  • •    To fund Bikeability courses

Our overall aim is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.

2015/16 Impact: 

The impact and the effectiveness of the various initiatives that have been introduced over the last year are not necessarily easy to directly link to changes in healthy lifestyles or PE participation. However, we do have positive anecdotal evidence of: 

The school continues to offer a wide range of sports clubs. More varied clubs were run during this academic year including volleyball, tri golf and badminton.

The school was visited by Olympian, Gail Emms as part of an on-going programme called Be the best you can Be.

Young Sports Leaders have volunteered in school, not only increasing sports participation but also promoting links with our local Secondary School.

All year groups participated in Bikeability giving the children the opportunity to develop important life skills. Levels 1 & 2 were offered taking children from the basics of balance and control to short journeys on a road.
