We believe that physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and interaction with others. Through sport and other physical activities our children will learn about their responsibilities both as individuals and members of groups and teams. They learn to co-operate and to compete fairly, understanding their own and other’s roles.
What is the Sports Premium?
The Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Schools receive funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, and are free to choose the best of way using of the money. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
The Schools Games Mark is a national indicator of the quality of PE provision in school. We are proud that we have held a Gold Award for several years. This shows our commitment to sports and PE. Due to the pandemic, we have been granted our Gold Status for the academic year 2020 – 2021.
