PE and Sport Premium Funding

This funding was started to promote good health and carry on the sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic Games by developing sustainable ‘grass-roots’ sports provision for pupils and teachers.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. 

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
At Bolney CEP School
Led by enthusiastic staff, our vision for utilising this money is making our provision as sustainable as possible.

The key elements are:
  • Delivering a comprehensive and progressive PE curriculum
  • High quality teaching 
  • Formative assessment
  • Opportunities for competition
  • Developing pupil sport leaders and ambassadors

1) Membership of the Mid-Sussex Active locality group. The key elements of this membership are: pupil and teacher training (young ambassadors, professional CPD for staff), participation in competitions, both within school and between schools and to increase the scope of sports played by children across the age-ranges. There is also a network for teacher support.

2) We employ specialist coaches to deliver high quality PE to the children. Importantly, these coaches are also training staff in the delivery of PE and in the effective use of assessment. Staff work with the coaches each week when the coach delivers one of the two PE sessions for each class. The class teacher is then given suggestions of how to further develop these skills.
3) We employ a Sports Teaching Assistant, who, along with our PE subject leader, promotes PE and sport across the school. They lead on using physical activity to promote learning, in particular supporting children to develop their numeracy and spelling skills through active learning. They also promote games at break times to help children develop their interpersonal skills as well as their co-ordination and increase their physical activity.
