Primary Sports Premium 2014-2015

Vision Statement:  Participate, Perform, Progress

At St Augustine of Canterbury Catholic Primary School, Physical Education (PE) and Sport play an integral role in making our vision statement a reality for pupils, of all abilities, to achieve their potential and to promote lifelong participation.

PE and Sport provide our children with opportunities to develop the important qualities of self-control, determination, communication, team work and commitment. This should lead to improved concentration, attitude and achievement in all aspects of their personal development.

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for two years until 2015 to improve provision of PE and Sport in primary schools.  We are committed to using this funding to enhance our provision of high quality PE, both within and beyond the curriculum and to add to our existing resources.

To support us in achieving this, we are using a proportion of our funding to belong to the Grange School Sports Partnership. This gives us access to greater participation in inter-school competition across a range of sports, specific training for staff, coaching for children, purchasing new resources and promoting physical activity both in and out of school. (See provisional list at the end of this document)

What does this mean for our school?

We received £8,951 in the 14-15 year to spend on improving and maintaining high quality P.E. and Sport in school.

Developing PE at St.Augustine’s  

We will develop teaching and learning, progress and achievement in PE at our school whilst improving resources and widening sports participation. Resources purchased so far include new racking and storage for small apparatus for ease of use. New football goals, vaulting horse and springboard complete our equipment.

The Grange partnership has also improved our coordination of sporting activities and staff training with experienced coaches.  The Sports Premium allows liaison with other South Gloucestershire Catholic Schools to establish sporting competitions and wider pupil participation.
