What is the Sports Premium?
The government is provides Sports Premium funding to Primary Schools to purchase new sports equipment, to give children the opportunity to participate in different sporting activities and to ensure children have the opportunity to be daily active. Each school receives £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil each year – here at Engaines, that means we receive around £18,157 for the Academic year 20120/2021. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision as well as activities to keep children active in schools.
Purpose of the funding
At Engaines Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
Sport is an integral part of school life at Engaines Primary and the school has a long history of high achievement in many different activities. Recently, our teams have had successes in boys and girls football, netball, rounders, chess and tag rugby, demonstrating the drive and ability of our children.
There is a wide range of opportunities both during and outside the school day. All abilities are catered for – we pride ourselves in the level of inclusion, offering activities appropriate for each child’s ability. We emphasise teamwork, fair play and sportsmanship. IN Year 6 the children also have the opportunity to learn to swim and to take part in more unusual sports like yoga, kick-boxing, chess and circuit training as well as the usual sports e.g. cricket and gymnastics.
