Sports Premium Statement 2017-18

We believe that an outstanding PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of the children.

The Head Teacher and PE co-ordinator are committed to ensure that all pupils receive at least 2 hours of high quality well-planned PE per week delivered by confident teachers who are sustainably trained in this area.

The school engages with numerous organisations that support the provision of school sport. We are Level 2 participants in the Brixham and Churston School Sport Partnership (SSP). This gives the school access to numerous sporting festivals in which the pupils participate in varied activities and provides plentiful opportunities for KS2 children to work in a KS3 environment, ensuring a good transition from Year 6 into secondary school. The school reaches out to local clubs and maintains relationships formed through the SSP to enable access to quality coaches/sports groups which the school can employ to provide Extra Curricular activities. Children are also signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills and maintain their fitness and enthusiasm outside school.

In inter-school competition the school uses a number of teams to ensure that competitive sport opportunities are available to a wider range of pupils. This is supplemented by numerous tournaments with local cluster schools and its general attitude is to participate in any competition, promote fair play and good sportsmanship in all outcomes. As part of our Level 2 SSP children participate in numerous competitive sporting events eg: Year 6 recently took part in a tag rugby event hosted by Brixham College, where they qualified for the regional final.

Within the school, houses will compete in regular sports days. All teams receive recognition for their participation and sporting success in weekly assemblies and in termly achievement assemblies.

Both parents and governors are fully engaged and supportive of St Margaret Clitherow’s school sport. To celebrate and highlight children’s sporting achievements, team photos and results are shared on the website, schools Twitter page alongside regular assemblies and newsletters. All children enter multiple competitions/festivals a year; with their parents being active supporters at all events. We now have many pupils attending community clubs, and parents, with an interest in sport, helping at after school clubs PE lessons and competitions.

By working in partnership, parents recognise the enthusiasm and achievements their children have, which further enhances our pupils to be talented happy, healthy and active.

St Margaret Clitherow Primary School: School Sports Premium Information

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1 September 2013. The government recently announced this funding would be extended until 2020. Funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Until July 2017 each school received £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil. This has now been increased to £16000 plus £10 per pupil which means our sports premium budget for the financial year 2017-2018 is £17,220.
