What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding’. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of Funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs

Our Aims

At Leeming & Londonderry Community Primary School we aim to promote a positive attitude towards sport and exercise.  We aim to give pupils opportunities in school to try new activities, with a strong emphasis on participation and enjoyment.

PE lessons are aimed at developing skills that can be easily transferred into individual and team sports. Every child takes part in a minimum of 2 hours PE per week, including games, gymnastics, dance, outdoor adventurous activities and swimming.

We aim to offer a sport’s club each academic year whether it be to promote participation in a certain activity or sport, or promote children to lead a healthy lifestyle and to ‘keep fit’.
