St Stephens Primary School’s Vision Statement:
We develop enthusiastic and aspirational children who are resilient, creative thinkers, ready, willing and able to play their part in the wider community. We aim to create ambitious, resourceful individuals who are well prepared for life, through personal and academic achievement.
At St Stephens School, we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
The government provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
Sport Premium Grant
Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census.
All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.
What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?
‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).
At St Stephens School, we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport.
