In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE & Sport Premium. In the Autumn Statement 2013, the Chancellor, George Osborne announced an additional year’s £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year. On 6th February 2014 the Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE & Sport Premium until 2020.
The total amount of Sports Premium that we receive for financial year 2015/2016 is £9911.
All pupils leaving St Nicholas Priory are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
These are the 3 key areas we hope to attend to with the Sports Premium Funding…
- Increase the number of children participating in Physical Education and Sport and to foster a love for sport and physical activity.
- Attend more inter-school sports competitions so that children can experience representing the school, learn valuable life skills (teamwork, self-discipline, resilience) and take pride in their ability when trying their best.
- Improve the knowledge and training of staff to meet the vision of the school towards PE.
