Primary PE and Sport Premium 2016/2017

This funding is provided by the Government to improve primary PE and school sport. It is ring fenced and allocated to the head teacher to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport. Our allocation is £8000.

Our Vision

Our vision is that all pupils become physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation to equip them for a heathy lifestyle and life-long participation in physical activity and sport.

The school budget is also used to achieve these aims.

4.To promote school sport throughout the city:-

A percentage of the premium is used to support the sport’s network established by Helen Moores (the former Stoke South Sport Co-ordinator) to develop physical activity and competitive sport amongst primary schools that are members of the OPEN P.E. network. This network offers lots of opportunities to collaborate with the Youth Sport’s Trust and active School’s Programme. It also provides quality professional development for our teachers.



Evaluating the Impact

In September 2013 all the KS1 and KS2 children were given a fitness test and scores reported to parents. The test was repeated in July 2016 during a 2 day PE, games skills and activity focus, during Health and Well Being week and 42% of all children improved their scores. The aim now is to continue this focus and impact.
