Primary Physical Education and Sport Premium
Since September 2013, all primary schools across England have received a share of the Government £150m per annum Primary Physical Education and Sport Premium. The funding is ring-fenced and must be spent on improving the provision and quality of PE and sport in primary schools so that pupils develop healthy, active lifestyles.
Fritwell C of E Primary School has received £8640 for the current academic year.
£2,000 of our grant has been spent on our annual affiliation to North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership (NOSSP). This affiliation gives Fritwell C of E Primary School access to regular expert advice and support from a secondary PE specialist, quality assured professional development training for teachers and teaching assistants, termly networking opportunities for our PE lead, occasional input and support from qualified sports coaches, access to regular sports competitions and festivals including national School Games competitions, support with the development and delivery of primary Change4Life sports clubs, links to quality assured community clubs and leisure providers, data collection to help measure and monitor progress and impact and regular national and local updates relating to PE, children’s health and well-being and school sport.

The remaining PE and Sport Premium has been and will be spent on improving PE resources in school (including cross curricular resources to help promote healthy and active lifestyles), covering supply costs to enable staff to attend PE CPD, contributing to transport costs so that as many children as possible can attend competitions and festivals and buying in additional sports specific coaching expertise (including a coach to support teaching and learning across all year groups for 2 hours per week and Chance to Shine cricket coaches). In addition the Sports Council has been researching the cost of new team kit, which would be available for all children attending competitions to wear to represent the school. The grant has also enabled the PE subject leader to carry out a PE learning walk and pupil interviews to assess the impact of the funding.
