Sports Premium Allocation

Sport Premium Allocation for 2015 / 2016

For the 2015 / 2016 Academic year, the school was allocated £9960

Q. What is the Sports Premium and how should it be used?

Sports Premium funding is provided to improve and enhance the provision of PE and Sport in schools.

There is strong evidence to suggest that sport can help develop a range of skills that are transferable and beneficial to the classroom, including communication, leadership, teamwork, discipline and respect for authority. St Stephen’s Junior School has also found that by providing extra curricular sporting opportunities to vulnerable children, it enhances their academic attainment, attitude and aspiration.

This is how St. Stephen’s Junior School used the premium in 2015/2016

  • To support a full time Dance teacher to enhance children’s experience of Dance during lessons and PPA time and provide opportunities to enter competitions
  • To support a Teaching Assistant/Sports Coach to deliver curriculum PE as well as Sport at Lunch times and play times
  • Sports clubs and games based activities after school
