Sports Premium

At Sacred Heart Primary School, we believe PE & Sport to  be an essential part of education for every pupil. We also believe that the provision of high quality PE and sport has the potential to change people's lives for the better and prepare them for a healthy life in the future.
At Sacred Heart we aim to increase participation in sports and PE and deliver healthy lifestyles by:
  • developing a 'fitness for life' ethos across the whole school community 
  • aiming for each child to be a healthy weight
  • improving emotional health and well-being
  • improving the quality of teaching PE
  • developing confidence in staff with the teaching of PE across the school
  • promoting the importance of a healthy lifestyle to all pupils
  • continuing to build on the legacy of the 2012 Olympics and recognize the importance of upholding the Olympic and Paralympic Values across the school
  • Encourage competitive sport across the school through competitions
  • promoting competitive sport outside of school

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

Sport Premium Grant Allocation

Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census. 

What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

We will continue to develop out Sport Premium to raise standards and participation levels in PE throughout the school.
