Sports Premium Overview
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for two years, with a view to extending until 2020, in order to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
At St Alban’s Catholic Primary School, we understand the contribution of PE and sport to the health and well-being of our pupils. In addition, we believe that an exciting, varied PE curriculum, combined with extra-curricular opportunities, can help to promote other valuable qualities such as good discipline, teamwork, communication, perseverance and a drive to succeed. We aim to achieve this through a commitment to providing every child with the necessary skills and confidence to participate in sporting activities and in leading a healthy lifestyle.
MAIN OBJECTIVE: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in our school.
It is expected that we will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
- The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
- Increased participation in competitive sport.
