Schools are allocated a sum of money, called the Primary PE and Sport Funding to support all children and improve the quantity, quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school, and the school must decide how best to use the money to improve the breadth and quality of PE and sport provision, including increased participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

This year (2017 / 2018), Christ Church were allocated a total sum of £8,000.

Targets for 2017/2018 (as highlighted within the PE Action Plan):

  • To continue to offer the range of opportunities for all children across a range of areas of PE and Sport.
  • To develop the new Sports Subject Leader.
  • To offer new sports opportunities for children.

Impact measures:

  • An increase in the number of pupils taking part in after school sport.
  • Increased participation (and enjoyment!) in PE activities.
  • Increased participation and improvement in competitive school sports.
  • Increased partnership with other schools and local partners in relation to PE and Sport.
  • Increased opportunities for pupils to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities appropriate to their age and level of development, including pupils identified as being G&T in PE.

In order to support our targets, Christ Church CE Primary School will use the PE and Sports Funding Allocation money to:

  • Subscribe to  local sports networks, including: Heysham and Lancaster Sports School Network, (SSN) Carnforth Rural Schools Network (RSN).
  • Offer a range of subsidised after school clubs linked to the development of PE and sport for children of all ages across the school over the course of the year.
  • Offer opportunities for all children to be taught by a specialist coach / instructor in school.
  • Fund opportunities (e.g. by paying for transport) for all children to participate within a range of ‘inter-school’ competitions against other local schools, both as part of the SSN provision and RSA.
  • Provide training for Sports Leaders.
