Sports Premium Grant

The Department of Education vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is for: “All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport”

Sports and PE are a core priority of the Grove Park curriculum and incorporates our underlying values of a personal growth model of teaching which recognises children’s physical development as a fundamental and essential part of learning. We adhere firmly to the motto ‘mens sana in corpore sano’ recognising the importance of physical health as a foundation to successful learning in all areas. Sports and PE play key role in our school curriculum, supported fully and led by our dedicated PE teacher who coordinates all aspects of PE and Healthy Eating and Lifestyles across the school.  

The Sport Premium is government spending for improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools from 2013 to 2016. This extra funding is allocated directly to primary schools. The overview for Sport Premium at Grove Park Primary School is available below.
