PE Provision And Premium
At St James Primary School, we recognise how important sport and PE is to the emotional, social and physical well being of our children. We know from pupil surveys that our children enjoy their PE lessons – learning new sports and skills as well as developing their teamwork, resilience, determination and self belief. Our PE takes a varied form and we provide a minimum of two hours of PE a week for Years 1 to 6.
Over the academic year, we cover gymnastics, dance, netball, hockey, football, dodgeball, rounders, tennis, tag rugby, cricket and kwick cricket, volleyball, swimming, badminton, athletics, multisports and fencing.
PE Premium Grant
The government provides all schools with school sport funding to improve and sustain the breadth and quality of PE and sport provision. Allocation for the academic year 2023 – 2024 is calculated on the basis of the number of pupils on roll in the January 2022 census. Consequently the school receives £17,788.
Our intended outcomes for 2023 - 2024 are
