PE and sport grant allocations for 2018-2019
Sport Premium Grant Overview
A Sports Premium grant is awarded annually to schools to fund improvements in PE and sporting activities. The total funding allocated to St Mary Magdalen’s for the academic year 2018-2019 is £18,000. At St Mary Magdalen’s we are committed to using this resource to provide an enjoyable PE curriculum, extracurricular opportunities as well as updating playtime equipment. These initiatives help our children to develop both mentally and physically, with benefits spread across the curriculum and beyond. The opportunities provided by the funding encourage healthy and active lifestyles, as well as supporting the children as they develop skills of improving concentration, confidence and teamwork. In turn, we hope this will inspire a lifelong enjoyment of physical activity and nurture values that will help them to succeed in life.
The Government funding is already having a significant impact on sport and exercise at St Mary Magdalen’s, enabling our school to reach its vision of outstanding sport and PE for all. The quality of PE teaching has improved, the range of sporting opportunities has grown and the participation and success of our pupils in competitive events has increased.
