Primary School PE and Sport Funding

Sport in school is co-ordinated by Miss Hayley Howard and Mrs Sarah Kirkbride. During this academic year they will be responsible for ensuring that staff receive continuing professional development through watching quality coaches deliver sport as well as providing children with competitive opportunities and after school clubs at Maryport Church of England Junior.

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census. This year (2016-17), Maryport CE Junior School will receive £8660 Sports Premium Funding.

This year 'Sports Funding' money will be used in the following ways:

  • Specialist coaches to provide support in curriculum time for tennis, multi-skills, yoga, cricket, rugby, hockey, sports kombat and football. This is to provide children with high quality experiences as well as CPD for current staff.

  • Specialist coaches to provide extra-curricular opportunities for our children in racket sports, multi-skills and football.

  • Specialist coaches used to help staff identify Gifted and Talented children in multi-skills.

  • Skipping workshop for the whole school.

  • 'Scholarship' type opportunities for our identified Gifted and Talented children at the locally provided 'Chance Camps'.

  • Subsidised trips for children in school, to take part in OAA activity days.

  • Renewing and refreshing existing PE resources and materials.

  • The reintroduction of 'Change for Life' clubs and 'Energy Club' in school.

  • Providing extra staffing to support children in the preparation for upcoming sporting events.

  • Transport and entry to a number of sports events.

  • Swimming provided for the whole school in the Summer Term, please refer to the calendar for dates.

  • To provide INSET to current teaching staff in selected sporting areas, particularly Dance and Gymnastics.
