Sports Premium

Government PE and Sports Grant

The Government gives each primary school funding to improve PE and sport provision. At West Monkton C of E Primary School, we received £19,311 from April 2018 to 31st August 2019. The money will be used to improve PE and sport provision across the school. This funding will be spent to enable West Monkton to provide a quality sports provision across the school that encapsulates the curriculum requirements and also offers a wide variety of sports that makes it fun for all. As a school we are committed to ensuring that we engage all pupils in the importance of developing a healthy lifestyle through choices, and also introducing an element of competitive sport that encourages pupils to push the boundary on their performance capability. A report detailing the spending of the Sports Premium grant for 2018/19 is detailed by following the link below.

The report also details the percentage of children that, by the end of Year 6, are able to swim 25 meters. At West Monkton, our children access swimming lessons in Year 3 with additional lessons in Year 4 if they are still unable to swim 25 meters.

‘Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer’ (Department for Education, 2017).
