Godinton Primary School

Sports Premium

In 2013, the government introduced additional funding for primary schools for the provision of PE and sport activities. Each academic year we receive this funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport that we offer to pupils – to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. 

We must use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and Sport activities that we already offer
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Sports premium funding has steadily increased over the past 5 years from almost £10,000 to a figure this year of £19,600.

How we plan to spend it:

Our sports fund premium has been distributed to meet 5 core aims:

  1. Increasing the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. Raising the profile of PE and sport being across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increasing confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broadening the experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increasing participation in competitive sport
