PE and Sport Premium
Since 2013, the government has provided funding directly to primary schools to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport activities offered to pupils.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on sustainable improvements for the provision of PE and sport. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils this year received £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil. At St. Peter’s this equates to £16,700 for this academic year.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. At St. Peter’s, our wide range of extra-curricular activities and strong sporting tradition are just two of the things that attract families to our vibrant village school therefore we have sought to widen participation and the opportunities, including clubs and competitions, offered to all our children. We are extremely proud that in July 2019, St. Peter’s was officially awarded the Platinum School Games Mark! This was awarded in recognition of our commitment to and the development of sport and competition across the school. It truly is a fantastic achievement for all involved! Following the postponement of the School Games Mark in 2019/20 and 2020/21, our platinum award carried over to 2021/22. With incredible involvement and leadership from our pupils, we hope that at the end of this academic year we will be in a position to reapply for platinum once more!
