Sports Premium

What is the PE and Sports Premium?

The government provides supplementary funding for schools and academies to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport.

This money presently equates to £16000 per school per year plus and extra £10 per child. For our school this academic year (2019-20) Rowlatts Mead will receive £18770 in Sports Premium funding.

At Rowlatts Mead, we identify the contribution of PE and Sport to the health and well-being of the children. We are firm believers that an innovative and varied PE Curriculum, combined with regular extra-curricular activities have a positive influence on developing children’s physical literacy resulting in increased levels of concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

The Impact in 2018-19

This academic year with Rowlatts Mead there have been great improvements within Physical Education and Sport across the school.

During the year, pupils have been offered a wide range of sports in the form of curricular and extra-curricular offers. Some of the sports offered include: football, tag rugby, badminton, basketball, netball, dance, swimming, athletics, handball, hockey, cricket, gymnastics, dodge ball and dancercise. This year 46% of pupils from KS1 and KS2 attended an extra-curricular sports club.

External coaches and agencies have been utilised for Physical Education and Sports Clubs. Some of these include: Leicester Tigers, Leicester Badminton, Leicester Foxes and Moving Together. As well as providing pupils with expertise coaching, it has also contributed to the CPD of staff seeing an increased confidence in this subject.

The Physical Education and Sports Curriculum at Rowlatts Mead is playing a vitally important role in contributing to pupil’s behaviour and welfare; including their physical, mental and personal well-being.

Physical Education is taught to all pupils, our EYFS to Year 6; enabling them to develop good basic skills at a young age which they then build upon as they move through a carefully structured and challenging programme. Rowlatts’ aims to provide pupil with positive experiences which will develop an enthusiasm in the pupil’s which will see them inspired and involved in sport for many years to come.

Through our involvement with The Mead Educational Trust, we have been able to participate in a wider number of inter-school competitions and activities; bringing pupils from across the city together. This academic year we had a figure of 53% of pupils representing the school in a sporting competition.
