The Sports Premium Grant is money provided directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools, which have the freedom to choose how they do this. Every school is given a lump sum and additional payments based on pupil numbers.
Westgate Primary School uses the premium in the following ways:
Priority 1: To improve curricular PE and Sport provision
Priority 2: To improve access to sporting activities outside of school for those who would not normally get to access these opportunities
Priority 3: To improve opportunities for competitive sport, i.e. through the Sports Partnership / inter-house events
Priority 4: To promote pupil well-being and develop healthy lifestyles
The National Curriculum aims are for all children:
- To be physically active, working towards a target of 30 minutes activity during and after the school day
- To excel in a broad range of activities
- To engage in competition
- To lead healthy lifestyles
