“Where Learning Comes Alive”


Sport Premium

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport. The funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

Funding was allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1st September 2013.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.


Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

• hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons

• support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs

• provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers

• run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

• run sports activities with other schools”

Our action plan for 2016/17 is:


Key priority 1:  School Sport  - To increase opportunities for participation for all pupils, in a range extra-curricular and  competitive opportunities. Including those lead by Young Leaders
  • Children will participate in all DSSN events that are organised, representing the George Street team, in a range of sports and activities.
  • There are a number of sports clubs for all ages of children to engage in school sports.
  • Netball- We have raised the profile of football and rugby so have now joined the netball league too. Members of staff will support in the teaching and provision of netball and coaching the netball team.
  • Young Leaders are an important part of our school- The sports ambassadors and sports crew represent George Street sports. The website has been updated to reflect the 2016/17 sports crew
  • The sports crew and Sports ambassadors lead Huff & Puff, Lunch time activities, Intra House competitions and an after school club - these clubs are well established in school.


Key Priority 2: Health and well being – To use physical activity to improve pupils’ health and wellbeing
  • Healthy Life style Leads appointed - Sam and Shannon Y6 - they will lead a club on Monday lunch time 
  • Change4Life resources will be used by teachers and PE teachers in PE and PSHE in school


Key Priority 3: Equipment
  • New kit and equipment - future hope through communication with FOGSS - would be great to have an outdoor table tennis table
  • Speed bounces and more athletics equipment target
