PE and Sport Premium

'It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold or silver.'

Mahatma Gandhi



At Christ Church we aim to deliver high quality Physical Education, in line with the National Curriculum, that provides children with the physical literacy to develop as lifelong participants in physical activity and sport.


We educate and encourage children to make healthy lifestyle choices, thus contributing to their overall well-being. As a school, we promote a variety of sporting activities and support children in following their dreams to take their competitive involvement in sport to which ever level they choose, each fulfilling their own potential.


By following our school moto ‘Always be Kind’, our children understand the value and importance of team work, co-operation and respect, through the Physical Education we provide.



What is PE and Sport Premium?


The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. In February 2014 the government committed to continue the funding until 2020.


In the 2016 Budget, Chancellor George Osborne announced that revenue from the soft drinks industry levy will be used to double the primary school PE and sport premium from £160 million per year to £320 million per year from September 2017, to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles. This additional funding will enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer.

if you have dreams and goals that's all that matters.' 
Serena Williams

During the current academic year at Christ Church, we aim to use the PE and Sport Premium to meet the following priorities:


  • Up-skilling all members of staff to ensure high quality PE lessons are delivered to all children.
  • Providing our children with the opportunity to have active and engaging lunchtimes through investment in OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning)
  • Continuing to increasing the amount of competitive sport available to our children.
  • Providing our children with enrichment activities in order to inspire them to try new sports, take on new challenges and increase their engagement in sport and physical activity. 
  • Ensuring we have adequate and safe equipment to support the delivery of our high quality PE lessons.
