Pupil Sport Premium


The Government is providing additional funding  for the academic years 2013/14 through to 2019/20, to improve the provision of PE and School Sport in Primary Schools.


At Armitage C. of E. Primary School we constantly strive to deliver the highest quality Physical Education, sport and physical activity opportunities for all our children. PE, sport and physical activity support the children’s learning and development. The sport premium funding will support us to continue to provide high quality PE and Sport.  For the current academic year (2019/2020) we have been allocated £19,400 (tbc).

The funding will support us to:

  • Focus on high quality physical education for all children by ensuring bespoke curriculum support in all aspects of Physical Education for our teachers, including a particular focus on outdoor games.

  • Deliver a broad variety of enrichment opportunities at break times, at lunchtime and after school to engage all children in sport and physical activity.

  • Offer all our children competitive opportunities both within school and beyond school in a wide range of sports.

  • Focus on the importance of developing a healthy, active lifestyle.

  • Further promote PE and Sport in order to appeal to specific groups of pupils.
