PE and Sport Premium

Intent - 

Through a high quality, safe and challenging physical education programme, the school aims to develop successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens who develop as independent enquirers, creative thinkers, reflective learners, team workers, self-managers and effective participators who will continue to enjoy physical activity and sport as they go through life.


Implementation - 

We achieve these aims through:
• Broad and Varied Curriculum (Our curriculum Map moves away from sports and looks at skills and what sports can be used as vehicles to enhance those skills)
• Extra curricular clubs/activities (Clubs are used for enrichment of the curriculum and to prepare for competition)
• School Sport Competitions (Intra and Inter class/year group/school)
• Physical Activity (Break/Lunchtimes/Active Travel)



We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. Children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of who will also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE. We link our physical health with our mental health and use this to encourage growth mind sets and well-being.

• Children will achieve age related expectations in PE

• Children will enjoy sport and will seek additional extra-curricular activities both school and external to school related.

 • Children will use fitness and sports to improve their physical and mental health throughout their lives.

School Sport Funding is an amount of money that is put into a school budget in order to raise participation in sports, competitions and encourage healthy lifestyles. In 2022-23 the school should receive approximately £18,810.


At St John's we spend the money in the following way in order to gain as much impact for the children as possible:


  • A temporary responsibility post for a teacher to organise PE, sports opportunities, competitions, clubs, liaise with Schools Sport Partnership.
  • A full time School sport and PE coach providing lesson delivery, staff training and lunchtime and after school clubs.
  • Membership to Amber Valley School Sport Partnership.
