What is PE & Sport Premium?

The government is providing funding for primary school sports. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. This money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.

What is the purpose of PE & Sport Premium?

All schools must use the sports premium to fund additional and sustainable improvements for provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At St. Teresa’s Catholic Primary Academy we recognise the contribution of PE to develop healthy, active lifestyles and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

What is our approach to spending the PE & Sport Premium?

At St. Teresa’s we believe that all children have an equal opportunity to participate in a broad and balanced curriculum according to their needs, abilities and interests. We aim to remove all barriers to achievement and make every child succeed in live. Only excellence is good enough at St Teresa’s.

Any objectives that school find to be successful, co-coordinators then implement into the school’s policies and procedure for the following years to sustain these improvements.

We will create opportunities to allow your child to thrive and succeed in Physical Education.  Our focus on Healthy lifestyles are highly important at St. Teresa’s. All abilities are inspired and educated, strong relationships are nurtured, we (staff and pupils) demonstrate happiness and resilience towards new challenges with a strong emphasis on all pupils succeeding in sport.
