Sports Premium Overview
Travis St Lawrence CE Primary School’s vision statement:
At Travis St Lawrence we believe that PE and sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change pupil’s lives for the better.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. We are fully committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside improved opportunities for sporting competitions for all our young people.
Through PE and sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, teamwork and ambition. These all lead, in turn, to improved concentration, attitude and academic achievement.
What does the sport premium mean for my school?
“Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this” Dfe June 2013.
