In this blog post Anomaly are focusing on the exciting news regarding the sport premium for schools all over the UK. According to the department of education website, schools with 17 or more pupils receive £8,000 plus £5 per pupil, so for an average sized school with 200 pupils, the school will receive around £9,000. How to use the PE and sport premium Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. According to the government website, you should use the premium to make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. The website explains how you could use your funding, so for example you can use your funding to hire a qualified sports coach to work with teachers or provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively. How can Anomaly help? Anomaly is able to help with the sport premium in a number of ways. Instead of hiring someone to come in to your school, why not display our content which is tailored to get kids active and adopt a passion for sport? Below you’ll find a piece of content which is regularly used by schools already embracing Anomaly equipment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VAvut42bNE Got any sports mad pupils or budding P.E teachers on your hands? Why not use our green screen equipment to get your pupils to make their own exercise videos? Get the whole school involved by playing these videos on the external screens too! But don’t take our word for it how we could help. Gavin Evans, head teacher at Hilltop Primary School in Kent has praised Anomaly equipment and described how it has helped keep his school active. Gavin said: “Whenever I wander out onto the playground during a break there are always many children mirroring the exercises and activities that we have installed on the screen and programmed to be on at those times.” Gavin continued to say: “When the children are not running, stretching and jumping they are watching the second screen and getting excited about seeming themselves and their work. Thank you Anomaly!” If you would like to incorporate any Anomaly technology into your school, or find out more about our vast range of services in the education sector please do not hesitate to call us on 0844 579 0880 or alternatively you can email us on the usual address info@anomalygroup.co.uk Twitter | Facebook
