Following the 2012 Olympics the Government provided extra funding for Primary Schools. The purpose of the extra funding is to improve outcomes for all students in physical well being, PE and sports activities.
The money allocated to schools can be spent as follows:
o Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
o Support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
o Provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
o Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
o Run sports activities with other schools
To find out about how we have used our PE and Sports Premium funding please read the document below.
Children have the opportunity to partake in regular lunchtime and after school activities and we regularly sign up to sporting initiatives; such as the Newcastle School Games, as well as working closely with our trust to provide children with as many opportunities as possible to take part in competitive events.
We work with external organisations, such as the Newcastle United Foundation, to educate our pupils on healthy living and taking small steps towards a more active lifestyle. We are also proud of our thriving school sport teams, who regularly take part in competitive fixtures. We offer opportunities to represent the school in Football, Basketball, Netball and Rugby; as well as Athletics and Swimming.
We have just been Awarded Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award which we are very proud of.
Future PE Provision
We are continuing to increase our Sport & P.E. provision to help all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of, as well as provide more after school clubs. We are developing the curriculum and the breadth of sporting teams competing in inter-school competitions. We hope to increase our links within the local community through joint working initiatives and forge new partnerships with local sporting clubs, with the same level of success that we have achieved working with Cramlington Rockets Rugby Club for example.
