The Primary Sports Premium, received by Primary Schools across the country to develop the provision of PE and School Sport, provides a unique opportunity to impact the experience and behaviours of a whole generation of children.
In order to support Primary Schools to make informed decisions on how to invest their Sports Premium, a number of local and national agencies are working together.
Sport England, Youth Sport Trust and the Association for Physical Education (afPE) have joined in partnership with the County Sports Partnership Network; with the CSP in each area acting as the local source of information for schools.
Leap is the County Sport and Activity Partnership for Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes and we are able to provide Primary Schools with information, advice and guidance of the local offer.
You will find a variety of information on the following pages, but for more specific information or advice please contact Mark Stokes, Children and Young People Development Manager.
Support to deliver specific sports to your pupils – NGB offers
Across England there are lots of different National Governing Bodies of sport (NGBs) who have responsibility for managing their particular sport. Many of these have created offers specifically for Primary Schools which may include support such as coaching sessions, resources, training for teachers and competition co-ordination.
Follow the link to the right to view offers from each of the 25 sports.
Linking you to local coaches and sports providers – local provider information
Sports coaching is an open market and there are a wide variety of local providers who can deploy coaches and PE specialists to deliver PE and sport sessions on behalf of your school.
Providers can vary widely in both their offer and delivery; we have collated information on many of the local providers which you can access by contacting Mark Stokes.
However these providers are not quality assured and inclusion of their details is no guarantee of quality. We encourage all schools to fully assess each provider’s credentials before confirming any sessions. Sports Coach UK have compiled a guide to utilising sports coaches at your school.
How Ofsted measure the use of the Sports Premium
Ofsted will measure, as part of their revised inspection procedures, how well a school has used its Sports Premium to improve the quality and breadth of its PE and sporting provision. The school inspection handbook has been updated to include these changes.
