PE and Sports Premium
The Sports Premium Funding has been given to every Primary school this year to improve provision in P.E. and sport.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of P.E. and sport in schools.
During the academic year 2022 – 2023 Great Bradfords Junior School spent our funding on the following areas:
Continuous Professional Development opportunities for staff
Teachers and P.E. staff will be offered in house support and guidance from our in-house sports coach and from working alongside outside experts. The quality of teaching will be monitored by our P.E. team. Through both team teaching and self-evaluation, confidence will be assessed to ensure staff are developing their skills over the course of the year to ensure they’re delivering lessons which result in better outcomes for our pupils.
Provision of extra-curricular clubs
Clubs will be provided both before and after school. Our target is to continue to increase the number on role who attend at least one club.
Our aim is to use this funding to develop the level of staff expertise in order to have a sustained impact for our children. Therefore, we took the decision to use this funding to employ outside sports coaches in certain areas so that they could team teach with our staff to upskill them for this year and beyond.
We will continue to monitor attendance at these clubs to ensure we utilise sports premium funding, including providing equipment to assist in the running of pre-school and after-school clubs.
Updating and expanding P.E. and sports equipment
There was a considerable investment in P.E. equipment during the last academic year. This will continue over this academic year, replenishing and developing the games equipment.
Opportunities to Inspire
We will use this funding to join the Braintree Schools Partnership. This partnership in conjunction with School Games provides us with entry to all competitions from Level 1, which is local, to Level 3 which is at County level.
Funding shall be used to support children getting to and from fixtures and events over the course of the year.
