What is Sports Premium Funding?
The Sports Premium Funding is an initiative facilitated by the current Government to enhance the provision of P.E. and School Sport in primary schools. The funding, a direct response to London 2012, has been available to primary schools since 2013-2014 and will be until 2020. Each year, primary schools receive a lump sum depending on the number of pupils on roll and then a further £10.00 per pupil on roll.
Initially, the funding that Woodhouse West Primary received allowed the school to continue developing its provision. The school will continue to develop its P.E. curriculum, providing a rich, varied and balanced provision with resources enhanced, providing quality staff CPD and high quality teaching and learning for all children. It will also provide further exciting opportunities for all children to be challenged and allow them to compete in school and out of school.
The Association for Physical Education (afPE) website provides advice on how the Primary PE & Sport Premium should be used.
What did Woodhouse West Primary receive and how did we spend the funding in 2018/19?

Forge School Sport Partnership
Forge School Sport Partnership was originally established in 2001 as part of a Government PE and School Sport strategy to increase participation in high quality Physical Education and School Sport.
Handsworth Grange Community Sports College is the base, and supports the work of the partnership which currently includes 25 Primary Schools and 3 Secondary Schools, which means that we are providing high quality PE and Sport opportunities to over 10,000 pupils.
We firmly believe that sport and all that it encompasses truly can change the lives of young people and contribute towards raising aspirations, improving academic attainment and preparing young people to move forward in their lives.
All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
Indicators of such improvement should include:
• the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
• the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
• increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
• broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
• increased participation in competitive sport
