Sports Funding

In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of 150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport often referred to as a Sport Premium. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.

DFE guidance how to use the P.E. and Sport Premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that you should use the premium to

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
    For example, you can use your funding to:
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run or engage in sport competitions
Current Provision

At Brighstone, we are proud of the current P.E. curriculum provision and of the wealth of extra-curricular opportunities that we provide for our pupils. Sporting Clubs include: football, cricket, tag rugby, multi skills, athletics, tennis, summer sports and many more.

We also have a sports teams, run by our sports coach Mr Ashley Goldsmith, that take part in regular fixtures with other primary schools.

Parent Survey – Feedback

“Brighstone School is an excellent school. Very happy with the progress my child is making”

“My child has come on in leaps and bounds and has massively surprised me. I am very happy.”

Thanks to all parents who took part in our recent Parent Questionnaire. We are proud to report that 100% of parents who responded said that their child is happy and feels safe at our school. The responses this year also show an overall improvement in the school’s performance in meeting particular pupils’ needs, supporting learning, receiving information about progress and dealing with bullying – and it was great to see that you feel we are good at keeping you well informed.

Our thanks to all parents who completed the questionnaire.
