What is the Sports Premium?

The Government has continued to provide funding for the academic year of 2023/24 to provide, substantial primary school sport funding.  This funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and sees money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Great Dunmow Primary School – Sports Funding 2023/24

Our Sports Funding 2023/24 is used to employ an expert PE coach as our outdoor PE provider to develop our staff and enhance our offering. This entails an in-house sport coach who works with the teachers to support the children during not only PE in the afternoons but also at lunchtime and during after school clubs. This offering ensures that the quality of provision allows all pupils an equal opportunity to develop and excel. Our provision allowing for additional and sustainable improvements in our sport as each teacher is currently being upskilled by working alongside this expert while providing high quality sporting provision. The in-house PE coach allows us a flexibility to adapt to our schools’ changing needs and provide tailored support for the needs of our children and the specific competitions we participate in. This totals £16,714 from our Sports Premium Budget.

We have also spent a portion of our funding on a swimming teacher. This has given all our children a platform to improve their swimming and succeed early on in this key aspect. This totals £6993.24 from our Sports Premium Budget.

The impact of Sports Premium

The Governors agree that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability, that staff have access to working alongside specialists and have opportunities for training and learning, whilst opportunities are given to all children to compete in tournaments and competitions. Our funding is used to enable our children to compete, learn and benefit from extra sports activities.  We employ an expert inhouse sports coach who uses the Sports funding to give the children, along with assistance from the teachers, extra time for sports in the form of lunchtime and afterschool clubs, access to competitions and festivals as well as their timetabled PE lessons. The increase in clubs and engagement in sport has seen the participation rise each year, whilst the profile of PE has been raised as a result of this.
