Primary Sports Fund

PE Funding

At St Simon of England R.C. Primary School, the Governors and Headteacher believe the purpose of the Sport Premium should be;

  • To sustain and improve the provision of PE and school sport throughout the school.
  • To ensure that all members of staff are offering high quality physical education via a varied and exciting curriculum.
  • To ensure that PE CPD is on-going for all staff.
  • To provide appropriate competitive school sport opportunities for a wider variety of children.
  • To encourage and inspire children and families to choose healthy lifestyle habits.
  • To work in partnership with other schools through a local school sport partnership to maximise opportunities for children to excel.
  • To offer opportunities for our elite sports people to further both their skill set and knowledge of their sport.
