The Sports Premium is additional funding from the Government that is allocated directly to primary schools across England to improve the provision of physical education and sport. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of PE and school sport for all their children.
The additional funding must be spent on improving the provision for physical education and sport. The school will be held to account for how we spend the sport funding. Our school recognises the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. In addition, it is considered 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.
We are required to publish online information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at St John Vianney Catholic Primary School.
