Following the success of the London 2012 Olympics the government has agreed to fund primary schools for the next ten years to provide a lasting legacy from the games and develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age.
At St Martin at Shouldham Primary Academy, we recognise the contribution of PE and sport to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. Our Primary School PE and Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
•develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers.
•build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2018 to 2019 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Based on the January 2017 census: amount allocated to St Martin at Shouldham Primary Academy 2017/2018 = £17,720 (paid in two lump sums)
