PE and Sport Premium
Government Funding for Primary Schools PE and Sport
The aim of the 'ring fenced' funding is to improve the Physical Education (PE) and Sports Programmes offered by primary schools.
At St. James' Church of England Primary Academy, we aim to establish a sporting culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport. We also provide opportunities for those who show particular talent and flair in order for them to excel.
Purpose of the Funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, though how we do this, remains our decision.
We aim to use the funding:
To improve teaching and assessment standards within PE.
To increase Trust participation within competitive sports events.
To increase engagement of all pupils in regular activity.
To improve and raise PE and sport as a tool for development.
To raise aspirations and enable young people to improve life skills, leadership and mentoring abilities.
We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our pupils.
