Sports Premium

Sports Funding

Sports Funding was introduced by the Government in September 2013.  It is designed to give additional money to support schools in developing Physical Education in schools and build an ‘Olympic Legacy’.

2018/2019 funding will be spent on subscribing to the enhanced offer from the local sports partnership to enable greater access to training, learning experiences and competitions.  Additionally, we plan to re-vamp our Trim Trail to enable access at all times of the year to increase physical activity opportunities.

Sports Funding is allocated to schools based on the number of children on roll (Years 1 – 6) plus an additional flat rate.

P.E. and sport play a very important part in the life of Foxton Primary School and at least two hours of the timetable for each class are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum.  Through the participation in physical education children learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.  We aim to inspire the next generation by providing a wide range of sporting opportunities that cater for children of all abilities.  All children should have access to quality P.E. provision and we intend to increase the number of children taking part in regular sporting activities and increase the range of activities.

We have used our Sports Funding to:

  • Provide children with P.E. instruction and coaching from experts;

  • Develop staff expertise in teaching the P.E. curriculum;

  • Increase participation in extra-curricular clubs and competitions;

  • Purchase the P.E. Support Package from a local provider.
