PE and Sports Premium
At Surrey Square we aim to establish a sporting culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport. This is underpinned by our Core Values of Community, Respect, Enjoyment and Success. We have established a number of after-school clubs for our pupils offering a wide variety of sporting opportunities for our children. As a school we enter school sport competitions to allow children to be competitive and are constantly developing our PE programme.

- Improve the quality of the school P.E. programme by:
- Auditing our current provision to create a development plan with key areas of focus

Primary School's Sports Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary schools.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. Our funding for the academic year 2017-2018 was £11,381
Purpose of funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
- providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
- running sport competitions, or increasing participation in school games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
- providing places for pupils in after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that:
- all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
- that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments
- that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
The Sports funding will be used at Surrey Square to:
- invest in the professional development of staff at our school so they are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport for years to come.
- have membership of the London PE & School Sport Network based at Bacon’s College, Rotherhithe.
- supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional sports clubs during the school day.
- increasing the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate - running sport competitions, and increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games and inter school competitions.
- continuing to take part in local sports competitions/events organised by The London PE & School Sports Network.
- inviting athletes, dance troops and gymnasts into the school to inspire our children
- purchasing equipment to offer access to new sports and physical activities as relevant
- Develop a safe but active use of the playground at break times through playground markings
We will 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.
