PE Funding at West Rise
At West Rise we aspire to provide an outstanding PE experience for our children through providing expert professional coaches as role models, and through promoting a 'can do' attitude. Through our planned PE programmes, every child is encouraged to see themselves as a healthy individual, able to make healthy life choices and even be a future sports superstar!
During 2015-16 we received £9,874.92 in funding which we primarily used to employ specialist coaching for KS1 from an outside agency.

PE Funding Impact Report 2015-16
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The purpose of the funding is that schools will have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Allocation Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January 2013. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.
Schools will be held to account for how they spend the Sport funding. Ofsted has strengthened its coverage of sport and PE within the Inspectors’ Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision offered.
The Senior Leadership Team at West Rise Infant School will regularly monitor and assess the impact of the funding and report back to the Governing Body.
Our current funding is being spent on continuing to employ a specialist PE coach, who will be training teachers as he coaches the children, and the funding of a physical education specialist to work with our youngest children.
We have employed a Lunchtime Activity Leader to actively promote health and exercise at lunchtimes, linked to healthy eating / Healthy lifestyle.
We plan to bring Yoga for children back into school, and as we move towards the Summer months we hope to bring tennis to offer another sport into our children's lives.
