Sports Funding

P.E and Sports Premium Funding

At Caldew Lea Primary School, we understand that through Sport and PE, pupils develop invaluable qualities such as discipline, teamwork, communication, endurance and ambition.  These qualities enhance children’s learning both in and out of the classroom.

To develop the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics, the government has provided funding to all primary schools to improve sporting opportunities, participation and the quality of physical education offered to children.

In 2017-18 we were expecting to receive just over £8000 for the development of PE in school. However, a recent Government announcement has confirmed this amount will double.  We have set out plans to use this grant in the following ways:

  • Specialised coaching/training opportunities to ensure staff are better equipped to deliver the curriculum and improve the quality of lessons.
  • Provide opportunities for pupils to take part in P.E and sports activities with other schools.
  • Further development of lunchtime and after school activities.
  • Offer a broader range of after school sport activities.
  • Purchase equipment and resurces to enahnce our teaching and learning in this area.

At Caldew Lea Primary School we provide a minimum of 2 hours of PE every week including swimming, as well as a variety of lunchtime and after school clubs which increases pupil participation in sporting activities.

Further details can be found in the action plan below (This will be uploaded shortly)

The school’s aim is to increase participation in sport, raise performance and increase competition.
