Sport Premium is a government funded payment aimed at improving and increasing the provision of PE in schools across the country. Each school will receive £8000 plus £5 per child between Year 1 and 6 (based on School role on census day of the prior year) and so we will receive £9,400 for 2016-17.
We believe PE is a hugely important part of the curriculum and we pride ourselves on offering children many opportunities to get involved in sport, both during and after school. This funding has enabled us to employ the services of outside agencies and specialist coaches to come into the school and provide High Quality PE and Sport sessions.
We have employed the services of a local company PASS Ltd (Physical Activity & Sports Specialists) and the coach working in St John’s is a fully qualified P.E teacher. We believe the expertise, drive and energy of the team from this company allows us to deliver a high quality P.E curriculum where the children are receiving excellent teaching. In addition and equally importantly, this company provides training for our teachers which, in turn, enables them to become more confident in the delivery of day to day aspects of PE. This will ultimately impact the children through higher quality, sustainable PE teaching and ensure our offer to all children is fun, active and engaging.
We think you will agree that this funding offers many exciting opportunities that will benefit the school and most importantly the children.
