At Breadsall CE Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that a varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. The school sport funding enables us to extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, providing more extra-curricular activities in PE, entering into competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding for primary school sport until 2020. This 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. Until July 2017 each school received £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil. In 2017 2018 the allocation of sports premium money doubled - here at Breadsall CE Primary that means our sports premium budget for 2018 2019 is approximately £17,140.
