PE and Sports Premium
Again this year we have been allocated a sum of money, called the “Primary PE and Sport Funding”, by the Government to support children and improve the quantity, quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in schools. It is anticipated that this funding will continue until 2020.
The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school. The school is required to decide how best to use this money to improve the breadth and quality of PE and sport provision, including increased participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy life styles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Primary PE and Sport Funding for 2016-17 equates to a lump sum of £8000 plus £5 per pupil, making a total of £8,330.

Impact of Sports Premium on Pupils' PE and sport participation and attainment
We have made sure that all our children have had the opportunity to participate in competitive inter-school sports.
All our children have had the opportunity to take part in sports events in school. Some of these are competitive and some participatory, such as 'Run-a Mile' for Sport Relief.
All children are now taking part in 2 hours of taught PE each week.
Last year, Catforth Primary School came 3rd in the Preston inter-schools sports competitions over the year and received a trophy.
We are ensuring that these improvements are sustainable by providing PE and sports training for all members of staff to improve their knowledge and understanding of the teaching of PE.
We involve the children in the organisation of sporting activities at lunchtimes by training them to be PlayLeaders and organise games for the other children.
