PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools
In 2016 17 Manorfield PS received £10,349 in PE and sport Premium funding.
This money has been used to part fund the work of an outside agency, Fit For Sport, in school. This was continuation of the service which had been providing PE lessons and after school clubs since January 15. It provided for 2 trained sports coaches to take PE lessons throughout the school, 5 days per week. The costs of this programme per term exceeded the annual value of the PE grant.
For the new 2016-17 academic year it was decided that this was contract would be renewed as it was not sustainable in the long run. PE lessons are now overseen by our new PE/Sports lead teacher which adheres to our aspiration to ensure all core activities are delivered by trained teachers. Summer 2016 recruitment made this possible.
This new structure means a sustainable provision is now in place which we can resource appropriately.
