The government is providing funding for primary school sports. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. This money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
What is the purpose of Sports Premium?
All schools must use the sports premium to fund additional and sustainable improvements for provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Sharamns Cross Junior School, we recognise the contribution of PE to develop healthy, active lifestyles and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe 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.
What is our approach to spending the Sports Premium?
As part of our Sharmans Cross family, everyone is respected, valued and heard. We act in a responsible way, embracing our individuality as part of a friendly, supportive and inclusive community. We strive for excellence in everything we do, becoming confident, successful and independent learners, who value ourselves and others.
Any objectives that school find to be successful, co-coordinators then implement into the school's policies and procedure for the following years to sustain these improvements.
Physical Education and healthy lifestyles are highly valued at Sharmans. We have a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures all abilities are inspired and educated, strong relationships are nurtured, children are happy to participate in new challenges with a strong emphasis on all pupils succeeding in sport.
At Sharmans Cross, our Playground Leaders promote their love of physical activity and aim to get everyone involved in lunchtime activity. They deliver a range of fun activities, whilst developing their leadership skills, organisation and confidence. Delivering these activities helps promote health and a life-long love of physical activity for all children
