Sports Premium Statements




Following the success of the 2012 London Olympics, the government is providing additional funding to schools to improve the quality and breadth of physical education (PE) in primary schools.


At Clarkson Infant and Nursery School we are aiming to:


  • Increase teacher’s confidence and skills in delivering high quality PE, particularly gymnastics
  • Improve health and fitness of children and staff
  • Increase sport and fitness resources
  • Increase the number of non-team sports to appeal to children who prefer individual sporting activities e.g. through multi skills clubs/activities


At Clarkson Infant and Nursery School we are using the money to pay for a specialist PE teacher from the Witchford Schools Sports Partnership who will work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE. Through the Witchford Partnership, staff will also gain training in gymnastics, games and dance. Funding will enable children to participate in competitions within school and within the local area. Some funding is used to ensure that we have up to date equipment of a high quality. We are also employing sports coaches to work alongside teachings delivering PE lessons and to run lunchtime activities and after school clubs on the school site.
