What is School Sport Premium?

The government is providing additional funding for academic years to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. The funding is provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. At Greenleys Junior School total funding for 2017/18 totals £18,110. Schools have the responsibility to choose how increase and improve physical education available to pupils. Development and training of staff to provide sustainable improvements is also a key factor.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer. This means that schools should use the premium to: develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers and make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

Sports Premium Use at Greenleys Junior School

We believe P.E. and sport are an essential part of every child’s development. We endeavour to provide high quality physical education and sporting opportunities for every child, equipping them to lead healthy, active lifestyles as well as providing the children with the necessary skills of good sportsmanship, to strive for excellence and not be discouraged if they do not win.

We aim to offer a balanced program and a variety of activities to provide all pupils with the opportunity to develop a broad spectrum of skills whilst enabling them to develop acceptable fitness levels. We want to raise the aspirations of every student as well as the determination and enthusiasm to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle in future years.
