PE & Sport Premium


The government provides funding for primary schools to develop PE and sport provision.  As a school we receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil per year.

The funding is used to have a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning in PE lessons and is used for

  • Membership of Harrogate Schools Sports Partnership.
  • Specialist coaches from Sporting Influence to provide high quality continual professional development for our teachers, after school clubs and Intra-competitions.
  • Staff professional development courses.
  • Staff professional opportunities to team teach with PE specialists.
  • High quality PE resources.


Sporting Influence

Sporting Influence work alongside our staff to improve provision of PE and Sport across the whole school. Highly experienced and qualified PE staff and Sports Coaches visit our school on a weekly basis and also provide after-school clubs.
