Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

What is Sports Premium?

 

Since 2013 the Government has allocated additional funding to improve the quality and provision of Physical Education and School Sport in Primary Schools. Schools are able to choose how they spend this money.

Following an audit of PE provision at Lyne and Longcross C of E (Aided) Primary school we have allocated the grant to be spent on:

  • Improving the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of pupils so they all develop healthy lifestyles and improve their skills.
  • Developing the knowledge, skills and capacity of the school’s teaching staff to enable them to deliver high quality PE lessons.
  • Upgrading and increasing our PE equipment.
  • Providing sports sessions for all classes provided by a professional physical education teaching company.
  • Providing tuition for the children in specific sporting and physical activities.
  • Providing extra-curricular clubs for children.
  • Organising more intra and inter competitions.
