The Government is providing additional funding for primary schools in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details.
This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Boothferry Primary School
Historically Boothferry has always made a strong commitment to PE which is evident in the awarding of the Active Mark Gold / Sports Mark and also the wide range of out of school activities and involvement in competitive sport.

2018-2019 Sports Premium Funding Statement
Evaluation of use of PE and Sports Funding
We evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE. At the end of each year, the PE coordinator will carry out a whole school assessment of attainment (including vulnerable groups) in order to assess standards. This feeds the the following year’s action plan. Year on year trends will be identified and acted upon.
