School Sports Premium Funding at St Matthew's

At St Matthew’s Primary School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

We have used the Sport Premium funding  to support a great many initiatives durimng the last few years to develop our provision.  This has been recognised with St Matthew's achieving the Silver School Games Award in October 2015 and 2016 and now the Gold award in 2017.

Below you can find information about how we plan to use the sport premium in the coming year, while you can read about how we have used have used the funding in past years by looking in our Sport Premium Archive.

We use our Sports Premium Funding to enable as many children as possible to access high quality PE lessons, participate in a wide range of extra curricular clubs and activities and to have the opportunity to engage in competitiive matches and festivals with other local schools. The equipment and resources purchased will enable us to sustain the additional sports now offered and the use of Sports partnership coaches and links will enable us to develop the quality and range of our existing PE and Sports curriculum further in future.
