Sports Premium

Physical Education, Fitness and Competitive Sport


At St Nicholas, our vision statement  reflects our commitment to providing the best possible opportunities for children to enjoy physical activity and keep healthy. 


Additional government funding has been given to schools (Sports Premium) to improve provision of physical education and sport.  This funding has significantly raised the profile of keeping fit and being healthy in our school.                                                                                                                                                                


The impact of funding over the past 2 years has been tremendous:-


  • The Sport and Fitness Leader is committed to all children being active, involved and having fun
  • Success both years with county and Spelthorne sport competitions
  • Teaching is more focused on all learners needs being met and making progress through challenge and engagement.
  • The school curriculum for Physical Education is more focused pupil fitness, agility, balance and co-ordination , competition and co-operation 
  • A greater range of resources which are more accessible and used effectively to enhance provision and pupil enjoyment
  • Increased competitive sport with greater success
  • Increased after school and lunchtime clubs with more children taking part
  • Increased staff confidence to teach Games, Gymnastics, Dance and Athletics
  • A greater proportion of children are able to swim by the time they leave Year 3


In 2017/18 we expect to receive £16,500.  This funding will be used to support the priorities set by the Leader for Physical Education.
