Sports Premium​

At Glapthorn, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children.  We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude, health and academic achievement of all our children.

What is the Sports Premium?

The government has been providing £150 million per annum from the academic year 2013/14 to provide new and substantial primary school sports funding.  The money is to be used by Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.  

 Cluster Cross-Country Competition

Each school receives £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year.  At Glapthorn, that means about £16,000 per year.

Purpose of the funding

Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport but we have freedom to choose how to do this.  Our main aims as a school are to make sustainable improvements by ensuring that our teachers are confident to deliver the highest quality PE.  We want the money to have real impact by ensuring as many children as possible have access to a wide range of extra-curricular sports.  We aim to involve our children in developing sport in the school through our sports crew leaders and through the use of the School Council.
