Sports Premium

What is Sports Premium

The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The funding is called the Sports Premium and is allocated to all maintained school and academies in England. Previously the funding for a school of our size is based upon £8000 plus £5 per pupil (years 1-6). Last year (2016-17) St Mary’s received approximately £8,900 in Sports Premium funding. For the 2017-18 academic year funding for Sports Premium has increased to £16,000 plus £10 per pupil. This means that for 2017-18 the school will recieve £17,860

At St Mary’s we aim to:

  • Place physical activity and well-being at the heart of the schools vision statement.

  • Improve teaching resources so teachers can offer a more productive, inclusive and broader PE curriculum.

  • Provide a greater range of opportunities for pupils to compete in inter and intra school competitions.

  • Provide a greater range of sporting after school clubs.

  • Increase the profile of the school’s sporting activities and achievements

  • Encourage identifed 'less active' pupil groups to participate in sporting activity. 

What are our expected outcomes?

  • Physical activity and well-being are at the heart of the school’s vision

  • Planned investment leads to sustained improvements to the teaching of PE across the school.

  • The development and implementation of a varied, stimulating, inclusive and highly effective PE curriculum which responds to the wishes of all interested parties.

  • The school is well resourced to provide physical education for all pupils.

  • The pupils’ exposure to competitive sport is greatly increased.

  • Everyone who is involved with the school is well informed as to the sporting progress made by the pupils.

  • The particpation and activity of typically 'less active' pupil groups increases (through access to curricular / extra-curricular activtiies and other sporting events / competitions.
