Sports         Premium 

Sport and PE at St. Chad's Catholic Primary School

What is the Primary 'Sport Premium'?

The new primary 'sport premium' funding for primary schools has been designed to help schools in a variety of ways. Some of the outcomes we hope to meet through the 'sport premium' funding are:

Improved quality of teaching and learning in Primary Physical Education, including more dynamic exercise in lessons.

Improvements in the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including "increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances levels they are capable of.

Increased opportunities for competitive sport.

Uses for the Sports Premium at St. Chad's Catholic Primary School:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE.

  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport.

  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport.

  • Increasing participation in inter school games.

  • Developing some intra school competitions - Sports day, multi-skills.


  • Purchasing playground PE equipment for lunchtimes.


  • Purchasing PE equipment so PE lessons are taught effectively.


The sports premium money is intended to have a positive impact at our school by developing children's personal health and general well-being and improving children's attitudes and behaviour towards learning.
