Sport Premium Information
Sport Premium at St Alphege
Through the Sport Premium funding, our school is guaranteed approximately £9,000 for 5 years which we will spend in a sustainable and effective way which will improve our long-term provision of PE (Physical Education in the curriculum) and school sport (extra-curricular sporting opportunities). Half of the money we will receive has been funded by the Department of Health and therefore will also be used to improve opportunities for all children to adopt healthy lifestyles.
What is the Sports Premium Grant?
The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was an opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy a memorable cultural and sporting experience. The government continues to be determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the games and to develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age. As a result, the Prime Minister has set aside £300m specifically to improve the provision of Primary School PE and School Sport.
It is our vision that all children leave our school physically literate with the developing knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. We aim to achieve self-sustaining improvements in the quality of PE and sport against 5 key indicators:
1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles
2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the whole school as a tool for whole school improvement
3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
5. Increased participation in competitive sport
Ofsted inspectors consider "How well the school uses its Sports Grant to improve the quality and breadth of its PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances they are capable of."
Ofsted will look carefully at how we spend the funding and the impact it is having.
