Sports Premium

Our Objectives:

Participation – Increasing the number of children who take in physical activity inside of school, whilst also encouraging out of school involvement in sport and exercise.

Expertise – At every opportunity, we seek to have specialist PE coaches working with our children, with our teachers being present for continuity and knowledge sharing.

Diversity – With a curriculum that ranges across a number of different sports, the experience for our children is equally wide-ranging.

Differentiation – As with all subjects at Stillness Junior, the varying degrees of abilities are differentiated accordingly. Ranging from extra support, given to pupils in lessons, to gifted and talented clubs in the borough for the exceptional.

Performance – Be it individual or collective team performance; children are given numerous opportunities to compete in both intra and inter competitions.

Our Allocation:

Stillness Junior School was allocated £9,660 through the Government’s Primary PE and Sport Premium for the 2016/2017 academic year.  For the 2017/18 academic year we are anticipating the same amount.

What is the sports premium?

Following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games the Government has provided funding for schools to secure a significant and lasting legacy for the children. The aim is to develop an enjoyment of sport and physical activity, and to promote a healthy lifestyle in pupils from an early age.
