PE & Sport Premium
At Meridian we pride ourselves on promoting a range of activities - through the taught curriculum, extracurricular activities and visits - which encourage an active lifestyle. We believe that the combination of providing an innovative, varied PE curriculum and a wide-range of extracurricular opportunities will have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
What is the Sports Premium?
For the last 3 years, the Government has provided Primary schools with an additional grant for improving the participation and attainment of pupils in PE and Sports. At Meridian Primary we received £4,002 for the academic year 2016-2017.
Purpose of the funding
Schools must spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
How are we using the funding?
At Meridian there are a number of ways in which we are using the funding:
- SKILLS Teaching and Teacher Mentoring
- Year 3 & 4 Swimming
- Improving PE Resources
The impact and a review of the funding will take place at the end of this academic year to ensure future improvements are sustainable.
