Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
What is the 'Sports Premium'?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a 'Sport Premium'. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.
When asked about the 'Sport Premium' at its launch, Lord Coe reflected: 'When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London's vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport. By focussing on primary schools, we have the opportunity to use sport and physical activity to shape the daily lives of young people. I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people.' (Lord Coe)
We are proud of the current PE curriculum provision at our school and of the wealth of extra-curricular opportunities that we provide for our pupils. Sporting Clubs include; Football, Cricket, Tag Rugby, Gymnastics and Athletics.
Intra-school competitions also feature in our school sporting calender including Football, and District Sports as well as our yearly Sports Days.
