Sports Premium Funding

St Thomas CofE Primary School

How the funding has made a difference to sport participation and attainment.

The PE and sport premium grant has made a difference to our school by enhancing and further developing our existing commitment to sport and PE. It is also used to further improve the quality of teaching and learning within PE and raise the number of pupils participating in sports related activities. We have achieved this through employing Active Fusion to work alongside teachers in lessons to develop staff expertise, deliver high quality lessons and organise a range of local intra and extra-curricular competitions. Additionally, we have employed an apprentice to work alongside Active Fusion and class teachers in enhancing the PE provision that is offered both in class lessons and extra-curricular activities. This provision provides a football, cross-country, tag-rugby and hockey club to increase pupil participation in structured sporting activities and offering a varied curriculum. The funding has also been used to provide transport to and from extra school competitions and swimming lessons so that all children have access to a range of different sports and the maintenance and purchase of PE resources. St Thomas has been awarded Silver in ‘The School Games Mark’ in 2017.
