Sports Funding

Sports Premium


At Chartham Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children; and believe that an inclusive, varied PE curriculum has a positive influence on concentration, attitude and academic achievement.
We strive to offer sporting opportunities in a safe, caring and fun environment; and nurture good sportsmanship, perseverance and teamwork. We want all our children to develop a life-long love of being active and keeping healthy.


What is the Sports Premium?

The funding is a ring-fenced grant for English primary schools to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity.


Purpose of the funding

Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.


Possible uses of the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Hiring specialist PE sports coaches to provide lunchtime and afterschool sport opportunities for our children.
  • Regularly attending Inter-School sports competitions
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for competitions and professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing new, replacing  old and updating the schools' PE equipment and resources.
