Sports Premium - Christ the King RC Primary


 CTK Action Plan 2017- Review

Sports Premium Statement


The sports funding is provided in addition to the school's budget. Schools receive sports premium

budget for the financial year (April – March); this report is based upon the academic year

(September to July). Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the

opportunities for improving the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

Possible uses of the funding might include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE.
  • Supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs.
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport.
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport.
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in school games.
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport.
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • Pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.
