PE and Sports Premium

Sport Premium Funding for 2020 – 2021

This funding is a payment to schools from Central Government and can only be spent on school sport and PE.  Schools can choose how best to use the funding to improve and add to the sport and PE provision to help children to develop healthy lifestyles. The funding should be used to build capacity and capability within schools to ensure that improvements made will benefit children joining the schools in future years.

We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.  

Investing in physical activity for our children is a vital step in encouraging them to lead a healthy lifestyle for their future. Our vision is to provide active opportunities for our children and furthermore include all in healthy competition. We aim to deliver a programme of activities to improve agility, balance, coordination and most importantly the knowledge of the benefits of regular and sustained physical activity throughout life.  

Our Sports Premium Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering more into competitive sports, competitions and training our staff to deliver high quality PE sessions.  

We have received £10529 in Sport Premium Funding with a further payment of £7521 due in May 2021. The remainder of the funds will need to be planned in post COVID restrictions. 

Swimming Report 2020-2021

At Stamshaw Junior School we provide our Year 5 children with 6 weeks of swimming to gain experience, confidence and knowledge of being in the water. 68% of our children have become competent swimmers with 60% being able to demonstrate a range of strokes. Furthermore, over 90% performed personal survival techniques. We look forward to continuing our Year 5 swimming lessons with our 2021-22 cohort.
