School Sports Funding

At Moreton Morrell C of E Primary School we are committed to promoting the importance of health and well-being of all of the children in our care. We recognise that exercise and Physical Education (PE) plays an important role in encouraging pupils to be active and healthy individuals. It also has a positive impact on developing self confidence, concentration and academic achievement.

What is School Sports Funding?

The Government is providing funding for schools across the country to enable them to improve the quality of sport and PE for all children.

How much money will Moreton Morrell receive in School Sports Funding?

In previous years the school has received £8,500 each year. However, this academic year the school will receive £16,000. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in school.

 

 

Allocation of Funding 2019-20

During this academic year the school will receive £16,000. We aim to allocate the funds to:

  • Provide training for lunchtime staff in initiating and leading play sessions.
  • Continuing to offer specialist PE training to staff.
  • Pay for pupils to attend School Games events organised by Kineton High School.
  • Pay for swimming lessons and life saving lessons for Junior pupils
  • Pay for pupils to participate in the regional swimming gala
  • Provide extra curricular activities from Onside Coaching (Cross Country)
  • Replace old and damaged PE equipment including PE mats, netball posts, footballs and rugby balls.
  • Provide specialist training for whole school skipping and hula hooping activities in order to promote healthy playtimes.
  • Increase the variety of play equipment used at lunchtimes.
  • Providing staffing to enable pupils to access Moreton Morrell College on a weekly basis (spring and summer terms) to have access to a purpose built sport centre on the campus

The biggest impact has been the training of sportsleaders, where Upper Juniors have been taught by Onside Coaching and have developed a range of skills in order to be able to organise lunchtime games sessions for the younger children.  Now into its third year, with older pupils training up their peers, this has enabled the older children to take on responsibility, and share their skills and knowledge.  The occurrence of lunchtime squabbles/incidents has significantly reduced since the initiative was introduced.
