Sports Premium 2016/17

The government is continuing to provide additional funding throughout 2016-2017 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of South Rise and we have a whole school project this year with clear links to this subject area. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, unity, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.

We are therefore delighted to be able to use the approximate £9000 sport premium funding for 2016-2017 to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the following ways;

  • provide specialist cricket coaching during curriculum time for Years 2-6
  • develop club and community links with Charlton Athletic Football  Club, Thamesmead Town Football Club and Greenwich Cricket Club
  • enable increased participation in competitive football through the Thamesmead Town Football Club league
  • provide quality assured professional development opportunities for teachers enabling quality teaching and learning for all children
  • provide a cycling proficiency training course
  • fund new P.E. equipment for both Key Stages 1 and 2
  • Significantly increase the range and number of before and after school activities offered to pupils across the school.
  • Continue our partnership with Thomas Tallis Secondary School enabling children to take part in an array of competitive fixtures and skills days.
  • Compete in the Plumstead Manor competition league
  • Introduce a taekwondo after school sports clubs
  • Provide an opportunity to liase with The Greenwich P.E Inspector to review both the monitoring and assessment of P.E.
