School Sports Premium 2018 - 2019


Sports Day

Mowlem Sports Day 2017

Following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Government has provided funding for schools to secure a significant and lasting legacy for the children. The aim is to develop an enjoyment of sport and physical activity, and to promote a healthy lifestyle in pupils from an early age.

 The funding is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils between the ages of 5 and 11 years. All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils received a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.  Mowlem has received £8,850 for this academic year. 

 This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 Aims for our School Sports Premium:

  • For all pupils to enjoy and benefit from high quality PE opportunities regardless of sporting ability.
  • Ensure that pupils have clear understanding of the positive impact of sports on their social, moral and physical health.
  • To continue to improve attitudes to PE and Sport within the school, encouraging and enabling pupils to take part in physical activity through school sports clubs (within and outside the school day), playtimes and wider opportunities outside the school setting.
  • For staff to have access to training opportunities and continued professional development  and sustainability for high quality Physical Education and school sport for years to come.
  • Develop the confidence and subject knowledge of all staff so they can inspire and confidently coach pupils in the acquisition of a range of skills across a multitude of sports.
  • To make use of collaborative and partnership working.
  • Ensure pupils are aware and understand the importance of healthy eating and how this directly links with participating in sport.
  • To ensure more able and talented pupils are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments and competitive sport against other schools.

How do we plan to spend the money?

At Mowlem we will be using the additional funding to improve our provision of PE and sport in a variety of ways.  We have further developed our action plan to ensure we have clear vision for improvement that builds on the work from the previous three years of funding.  

Details of how we have spent funding in the previous three years, the impact this has had and our plans for building on these improvements in 2016-2017 can be found in the links below.
