The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The government allocates money to our school which MUST be spent on PE and Sport and Physical activity during the school day or before and after it.

At our school, we believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all and encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sport provision to raise participation and achievement for all pupils.

Our objectives for using this money are:

  • To foster a love of sport and physical activity amongst all our children
  • To support wellbeing through activity, competition and forming appropriate friendships
  • To use the Olympic and Paralympic values to further promote living well with others.
  • To develop the effectiveness of leadership and management through PE
  • To continue our increased participation in physical activity at break times and in extracurricular activities.
  • To continue to pursue opportunities for competition and participation in sporting events in our area and beyond.
  • To continue to improve the profile of sporting achievement throughout the school.
  • To develop the PE curriculum ensuring that there is a broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • To ensure that the children from Harbour primary have a real sense of pride when competing for our school at sporting events and always demonstrate good sportsmanship.
  • To provide additional support to develop pupil’s sporting potential.
  • To build links within the community who can provide different experiences of sport with children.
