The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils (as reported in the 2013 school census) will receive the funding.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at IJPS.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil. At WIJPS, we received a total of £9395.
At Ilford Jewish we believe Physical Education to be an integral part of our children’s everyday healthy lifestyle – we fully support the government’s drive to tackle obesity by delivering a range of enjoyable activities through a diverse curriculum. We deliver at least 2 hours of quality PE to each child following the key areas of the PE National Curriculum.
Competition is an important part of life. Children are introduced to competition within different areas of the curriculum and also the social responsibilities that arise through competition. Children may gain a good knowledge and understanding of sport even if they may not be a naturally gifted sports person. In addition to this our sporting teams play other schools, including independent Schools, in various matches throughout the year.
How we are proposing to spend the money 2013 – 2014:
Here at Ilford Jewish we are using the sports premium to:
- Up-skill teachers to improve the quality of sport lessons by sending them on courses.

- Provide more opportunities for pupils to take part in inter-school competitions.

- Investment in new, high quality resources where applicable.
