PE & Sport Premium
The PE and Sport Premium is a government funded payment aimed at improving and increasing the provision for physical activity in school. Schools currently receive £16,000, plus an additional £10 per child in Year 1 to 6, per year.
At Middleton, we believe that Physical Education is a hugely important part of the curriculum and we pride ourselves on offering children many opportunities to engage in sports and exercise, both during and after school. Our funding is used in various ways, including:
- Employing a specialist coach to come into school weekly throughout the year using the Premier League Primary Stars programme, providing high quality teaching and offering new sporting opportunities.
- Facilitating a sequence of ice-skating lessons for every child at the National Ice Arena whilst in Key Stage 1.
- Participating in many sporting competitions and festivals.
- Improving the PE resources available to children at school.
- Offering professional development to our teachers, to enhance their teaching of PE lessons.
