Sports Premium Funding
Our vision at St. John's is that all children enjoy and develop positive attitudes
to Physical Education and sport.
Through Physical Education and sport we aim to:-
Improve fitness, health and well-being
Promote active participation and lifelong learning
Allow each child to fulfil their potential
The school receives additional funds to support the development of Physical Education and Sport in school (Sport Premium). This money is in addition to the curriculum funding for PE and Sport from the main school budget. The way in which we have spent our sports premium is attached below.
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Our aim in Physical Education is to help our children to understand the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle by offering them a curriculum that will motivate, enthuse and inspire them to engage in sporting activities both during their time at Primary School and beyond. We encourage the children to work hard to achieve personal success and to develop their skills and confidence. As well as offering traditional curriculum sports such as dance, gymnastics, football and cricket, we also introduce children to an alternative sport each year in order to develop their experiences.
