Today, the Government announced new funding for primary school sport in the form of a further £150 million to continue the School Sport Premium.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer’s Autumn statement revealed that the Sport Premium will now be extended into the academic year 2015/2016, having originally only been guaranteed for two years. The funding, which has been available to schools since the start of this academic year, is allocated directly to primary schools, providing them with dedicated resource to increase PWE and school sport provision in their schools, and was due to end in Summer 2015.

In response to the investment, Jamie Kilner, Director of Sport for the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust said: “From a Trust perspective we will be able to further develop our plans to ensure a sustainable long term impact for primary pupils along the East Coast.”

The Government also confirmed new funding from Sport England that will benefit young people in primary schools.

From 2014 onwards, primary schools will be able to benefit from £18 million of National Lottery funding to improve sport facilities. The Primary School Sport Facilities Fund will be run by Sport England; in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust and will help primary schools that have little or no outside space to get young people active.

The selection process opened in February 2014 and follows a strict criteria which schools need to meet. Schools will be notified of decisions in July 2014.

Today, the Coastal Sport Partnership held its first group training day. Teachers from the 17 schools in the partnership attended the course which was tutored by Val Sabin. Val is an internationally renowned PE specialist and author of over forty teaching manuals that are used in most of the schools across England. It was a privilege to watch Val teaching as she used children from year one at the Skegness Infant Academy and year five at Skegness Junior Academy to show how her lessons can be put into practice. The course was very informative and we are hoping it is the first step of raising the standards of gymnastics across the partnership.

Val Sabin has confirmed that she will deliver a gymnastics workshop for all primary schools that are part of the Coastal Sports Partnership on 26 November at the Skegness Academy.
