Kirk Smeaton Primary School’s PE Vision Statement:

“To become Fit for Life!”

 

At Kirk Smeaton primary School we believe that every child should have a healthy and positive attitude to mind and body. We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and experiences  for all our young people.

PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

 

Sport funding- January 2022

This year schools have received double the funding. 

Schools with over 17 pupils receive £16000, plus £10 per child for children in Reception- Y6 pupils.

Total no of primary aged pupils between the ages of 5-11

Total amount of Sport Premium Grant received

What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

At Kirk Smeaton Primary School, we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:
