PE and Sport Premium

PE and Sport play an important part in the life of our school and at least two, one hour sessions per week, are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum.

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.

Sport also provides our children with opportunites to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.




The ‘Sports Premium’ is allocated from the Government and it is used to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools. This funding is allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to purchase in invaluable expertise and support.


This funding helps the school to develop sustainable approaches to improving participation in sports and physical activities, with improved delivery. It is important that children can access extracurricular clubs to increase their levels of participation and enjoyment in sports and have opportunities to experience and gain a taster of alternative sports, not necessarily on the school curriculum.


We provide high quality continued professional development training opportunities to further develop our staff and ensure that we raise standards of teaching and learning in P.E through the links with local secondary schools and outside clubs and agencies
