Sports Funding

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum from academic year 2013 onwards improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. In 2016/17 school will receive £8,880 to support school sport. We are using it to: 

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with our teachers when teaching PE 
  • pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport 
  • provide cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport 
  • buy quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
By investing the funding in CPD and high quality models of teaching, we are able to sustain the impact of the sports funding.

For a list of after school provision, please see our most recent newsletter or clubs section on this website. 

Evidence of what we have achieved with the funding can also be seen in the video on Clubs section of the website - Year in Sport 2015/16.  http://www.stjohns.newcastle.sch.uk/website/a_year_in_sport_-_201516/252599
