The government provides additional funding to improve the provisions of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport has been allocated to primary head teachers across the country. This funding is protected and therefore can only be spent on the provision for PE and sport in schools.
Sports Premium Report 2017-18
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that the premium should be used to:

P.E and Sport at Northfield House Primary Academy:
At Northfield House, P.E and sport are seen as playing a vitally important role in pupils’ development as rounded and physically active young people. In recent years, a substantial amount of money has been allocated towards teaching expertise and resources. Mr Smart who is a qualified lifeguard and coach, has been the specialist sports coach at Northfield House for the last 10 years. We will be inviting sports coaches from the Football Association to deliver Physical Education Lessons. Leicester City legends run our multi-sport club and football club. Leicester Riders run an after-school basketball club, organised development days and hoops for health tournaments at the Leicester Sports Arena. Dance, a children’s yoga (mindfulness) lunch time club and Northfield’s own ex- professional boxer Rendall Munroe delivers a boxercise after-school club.
Here at Northfield House we encourage children to be active by promoting campaigns such as Move it Boom Rio, the daily mile (children fit for life) and walk to school initiatives. Furthermore, we will ensure children are doing at least 2 hours of P.E per week by investing in new equipment for classes to use during morning motivation. To show our commitment to delivering an outstanding P.E curriculum, all teachers will be upskilled in how to deliver outstanding P.E lessons and activities by qualified P.E professionals.
P.E is taught to all children, from the foundation stage to year 6, enabling them to develop good basic skills at a young age, which they then build upon as they move through the school, through a carefully structured and challenging programme. Northfield House aims to provide children with positive experiences which will develop an enthusiasm in the children which will see them inspired and involved in sport for many years to come.
At Northfield House, we offer a wide variety of individual and team activities: traditional and sports hall athletics, basketball, bench ball, cricket, dance, football, gymnastics, netball, rounders, rugby, swimming, tennis, hockey. We also appreciate the effect of physical activity on enabling children to focus and engage in their learning. In addition to this, we want to give children who are gifted and talented in an area of Physical Education or Sport, opportunities to develop that gift or talent by having strong links with local sports clubs such as the Leicester Riders and Leicester City Football Club. We also organise friendly matches and inter-school tournaments within the Rushymead Educational Trust.
