English Martyrs' Catholic Primary School

Nurturing a relationship with Jesus Christ


Sports Funding 2017-18



At English Martyrs Catholic Primary School we value PE highly and endeavour to teach ALL our pupils to be physically literate during their time here; equipping them with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to lead a health active life and to develop a lifelong participation in physical activity.


To support schools in this endeavour, the government currently provides funding through a Sport Premium Fund.

The school’s current funding is:  £19,540


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

The Association for Physical Education suggest that funding is to be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This may be in a variety of ways. Their suggestions are:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE 
  • New or additional Change4Life sports clubs
  • Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
