Sport Premium Funding 2017-2018


At St Joseph’s Infant’s we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that a varied PE curriculum and extra- curricular opportunities have a positive influence on attitude, team building and concentration of all our children.


Being an Infant school, at this early age, the gross motor skills such as running, jumping and climbing form the foundations of skills necessary to develop the more refined skills necessary for individual sports. Playing and learning on playground equipment enables young children to build muscle strength, balance and coordination.


Our Primary School sport’s funding provided by the government enables us to provide and improve our provisions of PE and Sport.


St Joseph’s Infant’s received  £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil each year. This funding can only be spent on Sport and PE provisions in school.





Sport Premium Funding 2017-2018



Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million in each of the next two academic years (2016-17 and 2017-18) to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.


This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to the primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resources to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Primary schools will be able to determine what they believe to be the most appropriate use of this funding.


The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age the school has. The sport premium is to be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision while increasing participation in PE and Sport


This year we were allocated £8040

At St Joseph’s Infant School we aim to use our additional sports funding to:
