Since 2013, the government have annually allocated Sport Premium funding to primary schools, in order to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and school sport. For 2016-2017, we received £8000, plus £5 per pupil to achieve this goal.
At St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School, we believe PE and sport play an important role in our school, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better. Children learn to develop the important qualities of teamwork, communication, discipline, resilience, ambition and having fun, leading to improved health, self-esteem, concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.
We welcome the Government’s provision of this additional funding to improve Physical Education (PE) and sport at St. Mary's, and are committed to using this invaluable resource in developing sustainable high quality PE lessons, alongside providing greater opportunities for all our young people to participate in sports clubs and competitions.
