Free School Meals letter

Here at Sitwell we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We also believe that a broad, innovative, high quality PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.

With the use of the School Sports Premium, we can continue to extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into a wider range of competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver quality PE sessions.

What is the Sports Premium?

For the last 3 years, the Government has provided Primary schools with an additional grant for improving the participation and attainment of pupils in PE and Sports. For the academic year of 2016/2017, the funding is going to continue to be provided. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year. Here at Sitwell that means around £9670 for the 2016 to 2017 academic year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


At Sitwell, we will continue to buy in the services of SJD sports coaching and Amanda Thompson (dance) as we feel they offer our pupils something very valuable and are excellent value. The fact that they are long term partners of the school means they share the values and aspirations for the pupils that we do and this makes for a great partnership. From September 2016, Sitwell will also be buying in the services of Matt McQuillin (Fitness Boot Camp) and John Kitson (Boxercise) as well providing funding, when required, to support Miss French with the Ballet club. This has been done so that the children are being provided with even more opportunities to take part in a wider range of sports through extra-curricular activities.

In addition our school holiday sports programme “Sport Mania” was funded and set up using school budget, allowing the programme to become established and it is now self-funding and will continue to operate in all school holidays except Christmas, offering holiday sport provision for over 350 children per year (10am till 3pm).

(Please see the SJD sports coaching agreement & the RMBC minimum standards of delivery which all providers contracted by Sitwell for sport have to adhere to).

With careful budgeting the school sport premium will also be used for:

* Ensuring there is enough equipment to deliver high quality PE and sport.

* Rewards & Awards for participants and leaders.

* Subsidising sports events such as the English Institute of Sport, sports day and to subsidise travel costs when required.

* Developing young leaders (Value Leaders).

* Additional staff CPD (when appropriate).

* Contributions to the wider sports partnerships in Rotherham, with Oakwood and with Rawmarsh School Sports Partnership in order to remain involved in tournaments & festivals in Rotherham and the further afield, such as the South Yorkshire games.

We will continue to make a small charge for Sport Mania*, holiday and after school clubs** however, this money will be reinvested back into Sitwell school sport.

*sport mania is charged at £8 per day or £35 per week ** all after school sports clubs are £2.50 each during the 2016/2017 school year.
