Sports Premium

The Government is spending over £450 million on improving Physical Education (PE) and School Sport in Primary Schools over the next three academic years: 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of Horn Park. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, unity, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.

We are therefore delighted to be able to use the £9534 sport premium funding to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the following ways;



Desired Impact

To ensure high quality P.E. teaching across the school 
Our school already employs a P.E. specialist to teach P.E. across the school.

We will use sports premium to fund half-a-day each week, our P.E specialist will work alongside class teachers to deliver P.E lessons. Our specialist will model, team teach and provide feedback to teachers to develop their knowledge and expertise in the teaching of P.E.

The teaching of P.E. is good or better leading to improved outcomes for all children

To introduce children to a wide range of sports through extended provision

Our school already offers a range of after school clubs, accessed by children from Key Stages one and two. These clubs will continue to run as before. We will be employing coaches to lead new sporting clubs, developing interest through offering taster sessions funded by sports premium.

Increased participation in a wider range of extra curricular sports clubs.

To increase opportunities for competitive sport



To ensure high quality equipment is available to enhance the learning of a range of sports

Sports premium will be used to support staffing and transportation costs to enable children to take part in competitive sports with other schools across the borough.



Current equipment will be audited considering the P.E. curriculum, play time and after school provision.

Children are provided with regular opportunities to enable them to practise learnt skills in competitive games with peers from other schools.



Equipment is available to enhance the teaching of P.E.
