PE and Sports Premium
What is Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding for primary school sports. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
What is the purpose of Sports Premium?
All schools must use the sports premium to fund additional and sustainable improvements for provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At St Luke’s Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to develop healthy, active lifestyles and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that a broad and balanced PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
What is our approach to spending the Sports Premium?
At St Luke’s Primary we believe that all children have an equal opportunity to participate in PE and School Sport according to their needs, abilities and interests. We aim to remove all barriers to learning to allow children to ‘aspire, believe and achieve’.
All objectives outlined in the documentation will be embedded into St Luke’s PE and School Sport ethos and we will ensure that there is sustainability through constant evaluation.
ASPIRE, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE
We will create opportunities to allow your child to ‘aspire, believe and achieve’. Physical Education and healthy lifestyles are highly valued at St Luke’s. Through effective use of the Sports Premium for staff CPD we will ensure that all abilities are inspired and educated, children have opportunities to participate in new challenges creating aspirations. Positive reinforcement and relationships with staff enable children to believe they can succeed and achieve their sporting aspirations.
