Primary PE and Sport Premium
The Sports Premium is provided by the government to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of all primary-aged pupils.
For our school this equates to £17,700.
We want all children to leave primary school with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to provide them with self-confidence, self-belief, leadership and teamwork skills that will last their lifetime.
To achieve long-term improvements in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools through:
- 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 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.
Please see the attached documents for a more detailed explanation of our expenditure and use of the Sports Premium and the impact it has had:
