What is the Sports Premium?
The government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school.
Allocations for the academic year 2022 to 2023 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2022 census, as follows:
- schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil.
How we are using it at Howard Community Academy?
We have used the funding to ensure that children have the most qualified teachers and instructors during their PE lessons. This has included buying in training and support for teachers from Cambridge United and Premier Sports. In addition, we have used the money to promote a healthy and active lifestyle through targeted activities, such as Bootcamp, Swimming and Forest School.
