Grove Park Primary School


Sport Premium Overview

Our whole school vision

“At Grove Park we have fun with our learning.  Our exciting and creative curriculum enables all children to become confident, independent learners.  We promote responsible risk taking in teaching and learning within a supportive, inspiring, loving community.” 

The Vision

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for 2 years to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

We now have a full time PE teacher Mr McGregor who identifies key areas through a self-review process to ensure we can meet the high expectations in PE and Sport for our children.

 ‘Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day’ - (DfE June 2013)
