Sports Premium Funding 2018/19

Sports Premium Funding 2018/19

Each year schools are given a PE grant based on the number of pupils, to enhance the provision of physical education.  It is ring fenced and allocated to the head teacher to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport and to increase children fitness.

Our allocation for 2018/19 is £18,503.

The department of education’s vision for the funding is that, all pupils leave primary schools physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

St John’s CE (A) Primary School aim to use the funding so it “leads to a self-sustaining and long lasting impact on physical activity that will live on well beyond the primary PE and sports premium funding”.

We promote healthy lifestyles daily and focus on 2 high quality PE lessons through a broad and balanced curriculum.  Increased staff knowledge and training, additional opportunities throughout the day and additional sporting opportunities.
