PE and Sport Premium
In September 2013, the new sports premium was introduced to every primary school with the aim of improving the quality of PE and school sport provision. The recent Government announced that funding will be available till 2020 based on schools showing impact of their spending. We are happy to announce our funding is continuing next academic year (2015-16). Funding is ring fenced for PE and Sport. Each school receives an £8000 lump sum with an additional £5.00 per child aged 5-11, based upon the January school census. We will receive approximately £9000.
Mission Statement (re-evaluated July 2017)
Our Mission statement for PE and School sport premium at St-Christopher’s is to use the money to further support the teaching and delivery of curriculum PE as a whole school approach with staff CPD, alongside expanding the already strong programme of extracurricular activities to ensure pupils including targeted groups continue to develop and progress physically, socially, cognitively and emotionally.
As a school we believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all of our pupils. This, in turn, will improve our provision, raise participation rates and achievement for all pupils. We are keen to build on our current good practice and use the funding in sustainable ways.

How our funding was spent for the academic year 2015-16.
We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our 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 Sport’s Funding has enabled us to extend our provision.
- Staff Training
As a school member of professional organisations we are able to access training from other local schools, the local authority, national governing bodies for specific sports and national agencies. The funding is used to provide staff with access to relevant training as the curriculum and school require.
- Specialist Staff / Professional Athletes
The funding has given us the opportunity to host several sports initiatives including; raising over £2000 for Sports Aid and NSPCC bringing in professional athletes to help run circuits and sports tournaments, offering professional coaching and class question and answering sessions.

- New Resources
We have been able to purchase new equipment and a new PE shed specifically to enhance the teaching of the PE curriculum to give a wider range of activities/sports and to increase the quality of teaching and learning.
A proportion of our funding is being used to subsidise the cost of our school minibus. This helps us to provide school trips each year to national sports grounds/competitions and to enable as many children as possible to be involved in PE and School Sport.
- Additional Sports Competitions and Events
The funding helps to engage children in activities/competitions outside of school, specifically target groups of children who are keen to participate in a new activity or who are not normally involved in sport outside of school. The school took part in Girls Football Tournaments, Change for Life and Active for Life Events.
