Sports Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of our school. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people and, through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.


There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development. Furthermore, sport also provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.


In Summer 2013, the Government announced new funding (Sport Premium) which aims to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in all schools, across the UK. The funding is based on an annual allocation, over 2 years (2013-2015).


Total allocation £8,975, elligible pupils 195 for 2015/2016


The funding is being used to provide high quality PE lessons with specialist coaches and teachers, training for teachers, and extra curricular activities, both at lunchtime and after school.
