Sports Premium

What is Sports Premium?

The PE and sport premium is a government funding initiative designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.


How much funding does St Mary's receive?

This year, the government has allocated approximately £17,200 funding to facilitate PE and sport.


How is the Sports Premium funding deployed at St Mary's?

We believe that every pupil is entitled to be healthy and to learn key skills to prepare them for competitive and healthy sports later in life. We also believe in building team spirit and promoting positive behaviour through physical play. Finally, we want to develop sporting habits in school which are easy for pupils to enjoy out of school – inexpensive, not resource or equipment intensive and possible to do anywhere, anytime, alone or with friends.


Please see the documents below for detailed information about how we are spending the money this year and the impact of spending on previous years.
