At St John Fisher Catholic Primary School, we believe that Physical Education, School Sport and Healthy Active Lifestyles are central to each pupil’s physical development and well-being.
We recognise the importance of every child establishing life-long habits and developing physical, mental and social well-being. For the last six years since the introduction of Sports Premium, this vision has had a major impact on outcomes across our school.
Physical activity is a high priority at our school, it is firmly embedded before school, during lesson time, during breaks and lunchtimes and after-school. Our ambition over the last six years, has been to raise the profile of sport and physical activity to ensure that every pupil develops a love of sport to allow them to achieve their full physical potential and change their life for the better.
At St John Fisher Sports Premium Funding is highly valued and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.
As part of the Government's £150million per year funding, we have received £17,800.00 to spend on physical education and school sport. The funding is ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on improving the quality and breadth of PE and Sport in school.
The funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport. Sports Premium should be used to build capacity within the school and we are working to ensure that improvements made will benefit pupils in future years.
There are 5 Key Indicators that we are focused on and which we are seeing significant improvements across:
Here at St John Fisher we use a portion of the funding to employ a Cluster Sports Coordinator who works collaboratively across eight local schools (she is a qualified Physical Education teacher with 20 years teaching experience and a school Leadership background.) By working as part of this cluster we are able to use our Sports Premium most effectively to:
A detailed plan for use of our Sports premium funding against the 5 Key Indicators is detailed below. The document will be evaluated throughout the 2020/21 school year and will be published by the end of the Summer Term 2021.
