Sport Premium

Primary schools have received Sport Premium funding from the Government to raise standards and the profile of PE and school sport.

At St. Paul's, we received a grant of £5250 which we have spent as follows:

  • investment in specialist teaching
  • investment in professional learning for teachers
  • investment in resources to increase participation
  • investment in development of children's wellbeing - mindfulness, healthy eating and meditation

We have employed Miss Martland as a specialist Gymnastics teacher to demonstrate outstanding teaching. The teachers' are learning from Miss Martland and developing their own practice. The children are receiving high quality gymnastics coaching and are showing excellent progress in this area. Miss Martland runs after school coaching for different year groups and in different sports, to increase levels of participation and promote a healthy lifestyle to all ages throughout school.

In the future, we plan to spend further on training for teachers and on resources. We are aiming to improve playground markings to develop active playtimes, purchase improved equipment to support PE lessons and further develop levels of participation in inter school competition.
