PE and Sports funding



Our school’s vision statement for P.E at Newton Flotman Church of England Primary School is to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to develop a lifelong passion and interest in physical exercise and to provide the opportunity for all children, irrespective of age and ability, to participate, succeed, develop character and fulfil their potential in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.


PE and Sport Premium Funding is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils. Schools receive funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money’.

As a result of the additional funding the school aims to:

  • Improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
  • Increase pupils’ participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Our approach will be to continue to develop the successful areas from the previous year and to introduce new opportunities for our pupils:
