PE and Sport Premium
Since 2013, the government has provided funding directly to primary schools to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport activities offered to pupils.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on sustainable improvements for the provision of PE and sport. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils this year received £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil. At St. Peter’s this equates to £16,700 for this academic year.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. At St. Peter’s, our wide range of extra-curricular activities and strong sporting tradition are just two of the things that attract families to our vibrant village school therefore we have sought to widen participation and the opportunities, including clubs and competitions, offered to all our children. We are extremely proud that in July 2019, St. Peter’s was officially awarded the Platinum School Games Mark after achieving gold for five years! This was awarded in recognition for our commitment and the development of sport and competition across the school and was a fantastic achievement for all involved!
Both 2020 and 2021 have been a little trickier for all schools but despite the global pandemic, the school the school successfully ran KS1 and KS2 Sports Days in addition to a hugely successful sports experience programme for the whole school in the Summer term!
