PE & Sport Premuim
PE and Sport Premium premium is used to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that school already offers and to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
PE and Sport Premium Nationally
Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium each academic year, including:
- schools maintained by the local authority
- academies and free schools
- special schools (for children with special educational needs or disabilities)
- non-maintained special schools (schools for children with special educational needs that the Secretary of State for Education has approved under section 342 of the Education Act 1996)
- city technology colleges (CTCs)
- pupil referral units (PRUs provide education for children who can’t go to a mainstream school)
- general hospitals
The following types of school don’t receive this funding:
- nursery schools
- studio schools
- university technical colleges (UTCs)
- independent schools (except for non-maintained special schools, which do receive the funding)
Funding for the PE and sport premium
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding. In most cases, the Government determines how many pupils in each school attract the funding using data from the January school census.
Funding for 2022 to 2023
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
PE and Sports Premium at Newfield
Newfield School believes that Physical Education and School sport has relevance for pupils of all ages and abilities, irrespective of gender or ethnicity. The overriding aim is to promote participation, achievement, sporting excellence, a sense of fun, enjoyment and adventure.
Pupils at Newfield engage in a regular structured P.E. program based around the National Curriculum. Activities include gymnastics, athletics, cricket, football, boccia, swimming, dance and outdoor and adventurous education.
Pupils in the SEND school benefit from following the MOVE programme to ensure they make the best possible progress in their physical development.
The school has two halls, a hydro pool and outside play areas including outdoor gym equipment. Sporting activities take place using facilities in the local community; these include links with other local schools and providers. Newfield is a member of the Lancashire Special Schools Sports Association.
We support our pupils in the participation of sporting challenges and experiences to develop their opportunities for leadership, citizenship and for making a positive contribution to the school and its local community. Our pupils have some opportunities to take part in local and national sporting events.
