Sports Premium Funding

PE and Sports Premium Report 2017-18 – Sport Funding Allocation - £19,230

The government is providing funding of £150 million per year to provide new and substantial primary school sports funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. PE and sports premium funding from the government is designed to help all primary school improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils. We believe in providing children with a broad and balanced PE curriculum, which will motivate children to lead healthy lifestyles. We believe that sports and extracurricular clubs play an important role in promoting social inclusion, healthy lifestyles and self-confidence. Children should have access to high-quality PE teaching and resources, which will give them a love of the subject and encourage them to participate in a range of sports and raise their achievement levels.

School aims to 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 driver 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.

During the academic year 2018 to July 2019, the school has planned to spend our funding on the following:
