Sports Premium

The government provides additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – must be spent on provision of PE and sport. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport and have been given the freedom to choose how they do this. At Appleton Wiske Community Primary School, our aims are to:

  • support and engage the least active children in physical activities
  • pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • increase pupils’ participation in sports and physical activities
  • encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles
  • provide places for pupils on after school sports clubs
  • improve resources to support the development of the PE
  • pay for professionals to coach the children in our school
