Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
At Stanford Junior and Infant School we aim to use sport as a means to build character, embed values of fairness and respect, and give all children the opportunities they need to be fit and healthy.
The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils. The funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. How each school’s allocation is spent is their own decision.
The vision of the government is that: ‘All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport’. The funding has been designed to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding programme.
The Sports Premium is designed to increase the level of skills children have in all areas of sport, to increase their level of fitness and also their enjoyment of sporting activities. The Sports Premium should also be used to help children understand key elements of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, both in terms of physical and mental health.
