WHAT IS SCHOOLS SPORTS PREMIUM?
The Primary School Sport Premium is a ring fenced grant that is provided by the government and is allocated directly to schools across England. This funding is jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.
Our funding comes directly to St. John's CE Primary School and is ring fenced to spend on providing additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, school sport and physical activity for all our children.
Leaders’ thorough and well-considered arrangements to spend the physical education and sport funding are an exemplar of good practice. Leaders make excellent use of expertise from a nearby secondary school to train staff, broaden learning for pupils and increase pupils’ skills and participation in sport.

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
