Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. The Department of Education determines how many pupils in our school attract the funding using data from the January 2016 school census.
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.
Maintained schools, including those that convert to academies, must publish information about their use of the premium on their website by 4 April 2017. Schools should publish the amount of premium received; a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent); what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment and how the improvements will be sustainable in the future. Schools should also consider how their use of the premium is giving pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy, active lifestyle.
In 2016-17 we received £8858 in Sports Premium grant. Although the grant was used to enhance the provision of sport at Madley School it wasn’t enough to cover what the school invested. Consequently the shortfall of £5280 was paid through the school budget.
This is in addition to the amount we spend on the wide range of sports activities provided when our teaching staff take PPA, or for after school clubs for which our staff volunteer.
Sport is an important part of life at Madley. We are incredibly proud of our children whatever sporting activity they take part in; athletes, gymnastics, swimming or team games. When representing the school in sports events, activities and fixtures, they exemplify our values; both on and off the field of play. They do this irrespective of whether they win or lose and their sportsmanship is renowned throughout the county.
The document below gives a complete breakdown of the wide range of initiatives we have been able to help fund this year through the sports grant.
