What is the Sports Premium?
The government’s funding of the Sports Premium to school is continuing for the next two years. The funding which is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years – our allocation is £9865 for the year 16/17. 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.
Purpose of the funding
All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how this is done. At Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School believes in this money being used to create a sustainable increase in the quality of sport / PE teaching, which will benefit the children for many years.
It is important to us at Corpus Christi Catholic School that our Sports Premium funding is spent in a sustainable way which actively promotes sport, encourages children to participate, increases pupil engagement and has a positive impact on pupil's physical fitness, healthy lifestyles, skills and behaviour. In 2015-2016 we did this by:
