Sports Premium

The Government has provided schools with additional funding to improve sports provision. This funding can only be spent on sport.

In Corpus Christi Primary School we received the following amounts:

2019/20 – £17,710

We use the funding to:

• Purchase expert coaches to deliver a variety of PE activities to pupils.
• Training for teaching staff to increase their expertise especially in gymnastics and dance.
• Training and supply cover for PE Co-ordinator.
* Improve facilities for PE (outdoor gym).

• Purchasing additional support and expenses from LA e.g. fencing, tennis coaching, rugby coaching, hoola hooping and skipping.
• Investment in a cluster wide partnership agreement with Gateshead Schools for provision of support; training and participation in a variety of competitive sporting events.

• Developing opportunities to promote healthy eating habits and a healthy lifestyle to our pupils.

We are also using some of this funding to purchase additional swimming lessons in the summer term for those pupils who are not able to swim 25m yet.


We hope to achieve a more varied PE programme for our pupils.
• Good progression in PE skills.
• Increased participation in sport.
• Increased participation in competitions with other schools.
• Raise the profile of PE and encourage less active pupils to get involved.
• Improve links to other schools in the cluster.
• Enable pupils who are talented in PE to shine.
• More participation in after school sporting events.
• Promotion of a healthy lifestyle.

Since having this funding the following has occurred:
