PE and Sports Premium Grant 2019-20
Last week the DfE released the grant conditions and guidance for the PE & Sports premium for 2019-20 - details can be found here.
Maintained schools, including those that convert to academies, must publish information about their use of the premium on their website by
the end of the summer term or 31 July at the latest. Your school website should now show details for the 2018-19 year.
The DfE have also produced a document which is a useful tool for displaying this information, which is measured against 5 key indicators:
-Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
-Profile of PE and sport is 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.

Young people in Wandsworth TAKEOVER!
Young people from Wandsworth are being invited to TAKEOVER the roles of decision makers at Wandsworth Council and across the community. We really want your school and students to be involved in the events we have coming up.
Children's Commissioner National Takeover Challenge sees organisations across England opening their doors to young people, to allow them to takeover the roles of adults.
Young people benefit from the opportunity to experience the world of work and be involved in high level decision making. Adults and organisations get the benefit of gaining a young people's perspective on what they do and their organisations services.
Wandsworth Takeover Challenge 2019
Wandsworth Takeover Challenge gives young people the chance to take over from senior decision makers in the Council, Health, the Police and across the Voluntary and Community Sector!
This year we are running the event a bit differently, with a variety of opportunities available to young people across November 2019 to the end of January 2020!
ACTION: To take part, young people can register on the Eventbrite page here. Registrations close on 19 November. The opportunity is open to all young people aged 13 – 19 (up to 25 with a disability) who live in, or go to school in Wandsworth.
Youth Climate Commission 2020
Climate change is on the top of the agenda for a lot of young people across Wandsworth, as well as the Council! We are therefore hosting an event focusing on climate change and what can be done in Wandsworth to TAKE ACTION.
Wandsworth's Youth Climate Commission is an opportunity for young people AND decision makers to:
1. Listen to each other and work together.
2. Explore how to reduce their impact on climate change.
3. Work together to find solutions
Wandsworth's Youth Climate Commission is open to young people aged 11-18 (up to 25 with a disability) who represent their school, college and /or youth group.
Decision makers are invited from across London including the council, health, police and politicians.
