    PE and Sports Funding

    PE and Sports Funding 2015-2016

    Since September 2013 the government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding – provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools; however schools will have the freedom to choose how they do this, within the Conditions of Grant issued by the Department for Education.

    Clandon C of E School received £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for each academic year to improve our provision of PE across the whole school. This amounted to £8,165 in total for the academic year 2015-16.

    During 2015/16 the funding was utilised in the following way:




    Staff to attend PE and PSHE CPD training.

    Teachers will have improved knowledge and understanding of how to teach PE and sports leading to higher quality PE lessons, and promote PSHE in the school




    Resources for Dance and Gymnastics


    Encourage healthy lifestyles by education of food and nutrition, including cooking, and encouraging being active.



    Jigsaw PSHE resources

    Develop children's knowledge of personal, social, health and emotional issues, to promote development of self-esteem and awareness of others and their surroundings.


    Membership of Surrey’s Primary PE and Sports Scheme

    Access to annual conference, best practice forum and various training courses to support the PE provision, including schemes of work for various sports at EYFS as KS1 &2 levels.


    Provide a variety of new experiences to the children by way of one off sports workshops – examples include a skipping workshop.

    Encourages participation from all children, including those who are more reluctant to engage in standard PE activities.




    Offer competitive opportunities for sports through events at other schools, examples include Busbridge Infant Schoo in Godalming and St Bede’s School in Send.

    Children will be able to work alongside children from other schools to experience competitive sports activities.




    Provide new PE resources and update existing equipment.

    PE lessons will be enhanced by new resources and equipment.



    Become a member of the Youth Sport Trust to take advantage of resources and advice.

    Share good practice nationally and renew our Activemark status.




    Subsidise clubs or individuals in afterschool clubs.

    To persuade more families/children to participate in sport and promote/encourage an active lifestyle.


    Use of qualified sports coaches to teach throughout the school.

    Quality teaching to inspire children and to educate those staff assisting in the PE lessons, who regularly supervise the children during play times and therefore can encourage them to be active and use the skills learnt.



    Going forward, in addition to the continuation of some of the above, the school is proactive in seeking ways to improve opportunities for pupils at Clandon.

    The school plans to make some significant improvements to the PE facilities in the playground in order to be able to offer more activities.  This is likely to include the addition of new playground markings and possibly a new multi-activity games area with astroturf or soft surfacing.
