Sports Premium

Sports Premium

Our school receives P.E. and Sports Premium funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of P.E. and sport we offer. 

At Tritlington First we use the premium to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach P.E. and sport more effectively

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities

  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities

  • enter or run more sport competitions

  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs

  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school

  • embed physical activity into the school day through active playgrounds and active teaching

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school

  • the profile of P.E. and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement

  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching P.E and sport

  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

  • increased participation in competitive sport
