Historical Funding

 

Sports Premium 2016-2017

In the academic year, 2016-2017 Prince Albert Junior and Infant school receive £10,765 in Sports Premium funding provided by the government. The primary objective of the funding is for schools to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of P.E and sport. At Prince Albert School, the funding will be used toward employing P.E specialists to work across the Prince Albert Community Trust. The funding is expected to facilitate improvements against the following 5 key indicators:

1 - Engaging pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.

2 - Raising the profile of P.E and school sport.

3 - Increasing confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching P.E and sport.

4 - Offering a broad experience of a range of sports and activities offered to pupils.

5 - Increased participation in competitive school sport.

Following a self-review of P.E and school sport provision at Prince Albert we identified priorities for the academic year of 2016-2017 against the 5 expected outcomes from the sport premium funding. This report is due for update in July 2017 and will publish finalised outcomes from the Academic year 2016-2017.

Pupil Premium 2016-2017

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

The Government decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium in 2012-13 was to be extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the previous 6 years. As a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.

A premium is also available for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces and looked after children.

Sports Premium 2015-2016

In the academic year 2015-2016 Prince Albert primary school will receive £10,780 from the government provided sport premium. The sport premium funding is allocated to primary schools for them to utilise specifically for primary P.E and sport provision. Schools can use the funding in the way in which they see best for there school and its needs.

Since March 2014 Prince Albert primary school has utilised its funding to employ our Director of sport - Paula Sage works across both Prince Albert and Heathfield primary schools and her role is to over see physical education and school sports across the two schools. As part of this role Paula provides personalised CPD to teaching staff to improve and sustain the standard in teaching in learning in physical education. All of our newly qualified teachers are given priority one to one CPD as in a recent report it was identified by Virgin active and The University of Bedfordshire (Sept 2015) that although 88% of teachers perceive P.E as equally as important as other subjects; one third of teachers lack confidence in teaching P.E. The study also found that over a quarter of teachers felt inadequately qualified to teach P.E and over half wanted further professional development opportunities. At Prince Albert we want to ensure teaching staff are well supported by providing frequent opportunities for continued professional development in Physical education. We passionately believe this will act as a catalyst for increased staff confidence and in turn high quality physical education and sustainability from our sport premium funding.

The following report provides key information in regard to physical education and school sport developments throughout the academic year 2015-2016.
