PE and SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING for Primary Schools
In March 2013, the government announced the introduction of additional funding - the Primary PE and Sport Premium. This funding is specifically for primary schools to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport.
Purpose of the Funding
The funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered at the school. This may include developing or adding to the PE and sport activities offered at the school. Additionally, the funding can be used to build capacity and capability within the school’s PE and sport provision to ensure that the improvements made continue to benefit pupils at the school in future years.

In 2018-19, we will continue to expand the provision of sporting opportunities both within the curriculum and outside the school day.
This will include increasing the range of clubs and competitions available to all pupils across the school, to further develop their level of participation and skill development in relation to physical education and sport. Further direct teaching for pupils who are not meeting age-related expectations in swimming is planned for 2018/2019
After gaining the Sportsmark Silver Award last year, we will be applying for the Gold Award this academic year.
We aim to improve access to sporting activities on site by using local providers and staff to run clubs, and also to access physical activities and sports provision off site, e.g. participating in the Kirkby Lonsdale Rugby Schools Festival and attending the Queen Katherine School Hockey Festival.
