PE and Sport Premium
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Redby Primary Academy aims to develop an improved, sustainable PE Curriculum. This will lead to improved levels of performance, skill development and enjoyment for pupils. A core set of sports have been identified which will be delivered across all year groups. The aim is to develop identifiable exit routes which will lead to increased sports opportunities for pupils. Staff will be supported to develop their own levels of PE expertise and confidence to ensure the future sustainability of the programme. Our PE Lead is Mr P Kitching.

Year 1: Basic skills, Dance, Gymnastics, Cricket, Tennis, Tag Rugby
Year 2: Cricket, Dance, Gymnastics, Tennis, Athletics, Tag Rugby
Year 3: Cricket, Dance, Gymnastics, Tennis, Tag Rugby, Athletics

What is the Sport Premium?
The Government is providing additional funding of £160 million for the academic year 2016/2017 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Redby received £9560 in the academic year 2016/2017. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Since September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional funding. Ofsted have strengthened the coverage of PE and sport within the Inspectors Handbook so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed. Schools are also required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website.
How are we using the funding to benefit our children?
At Redby Academy we have allocated the funding in a number of ways:
• Hiring qualified sports coaches to provide specialist teaching for children across the year groups
• Providing training to school staff through teaching alongside qualified sports coaches
• Buying new resources to enable a wider variety of sports and activities to be delivered in PE lessons
• Buying into specialised support to enable teachers to plan PE lessons more effectively
• Purchasing resources and providing support to promote and encourage active play and lunch times
• Professional development opportunities for the PE leader
• Providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE and sport
• Continuing to run sports activities in school and increasing pupils’ participation in the competitive sport, both in school and against other schools
• Developing young sports leaders through the Play Leaders Programme at lunchtime
• Creating and maintaining an intra-school sporting competition
• Investing in Physical Development schemes for the EYFS.Please see here for further details of how we have used our funding this year:
