Sports Premium

What it is

The government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport for 2013-2015. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school.

How we are using it at The Academy at St. James

We have used the funding, at St James’s, to ensure that children have the most qualified teachers and instructors during their P.E. lessons.  This has included buying in training and support for teachers through our local sports partnership and local companies. Some of the funding has been used to increase the range of extra-curricular activities and subsidised or funded a number of these clubs.  In addition, we have used the money to promote a healthy and active lifestyle through a targeted lunchtime club.
