Sports Premium Funding

Sports Premium Funding

Primary school experiences are pivotal to the children’s future perception of physical activity and the enthusiasm and enjoyment of the pupils at Perryfields Junior School is testament to the passion and dedication of all staff.


We believe that pupils leave our school equipped to enjoy sport and adventurous activities for all their health and social benefits. For those who relish the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed at their chosen level and discipline.


In April 2013, the Government announced new funding for Physical Education (PE) and sport. The Government directed that this money should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision.


Key criteria to measure the effective use of this funding include:


• The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles.

• The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

• Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

• Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

• Increased participation in competitive sport
