PE and Sports Premium

The Primary PE & Sports Premium is additional funding provided to schools by the government that is specifically targeted at improving the provision of physical education and sport. They believe that the funding will ensure that all pupils leaving primary school will be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. To achieve self-sustaining progress in the quality of PE and sport we implement new initiatives based on the following outcomes:

  • 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.
We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2022/23 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of sport across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
