Sports Premium

PE and Sport Premium 2018-19

Which schools receive funding?

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

In cases where schools do not follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

In most cases, how many pupils in each school attract the funding is determined by using data from the January 2018 school census.

How much funding do schools receive?

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

The school level breakdown of funding for the academic year 2018 to 2019, including conditions of grant, will be published in October 2018.

What do we spend the funding on?

Although the funding we receive is substantially less in comparison to our mainstream partnership schools, Eleanor Smith recognises the importance of PE and school sport for our children, and therefore commits additional funding from the school budget.

The money we received this year has been spent on the following:

  • A specialist PE Teacher to work across all four key stages.
  • A bespoke PE curriculum ranging between 4 to 16 year old.
  • Offsite provision for KS3 and KS4 PE lessons.
  • Career Development Training for Support Staff.
  • Sports Coach for Lunchtime clubs and competitions.
  • West Ham United Foundation Coach / Mentor for 2 full days (1 full day at each school site)
  • Staffing, specialised coaches and resources (including a club standard Trampoline and safety equipment) for Sports Clubs after school (please see timetable available on the website – under Extended Schools)
  • A Resilience Programme running at Lambourne End Outdoor Pursuits Centre for our five-day pupils (Fortnightly Programme)
