PE & Sport Funding
PE and Sport Premium funding
The Government announced that it was providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (P.E.) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - was allocated to primary school headteachers. The money was 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 Harris Primary School. 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, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.
Impact of these initiatives:
Participation in active lunchtimes and extra-curricular clubs continues to increase. See the photographs of Positive Playtimes on the "Whole School" section of this website to see the full range of activities offered and how the children are playing together happily and productively.
Teachers are now more confident in teaching gymnastics and dance and assessments show that the attainment of the pupils has considerably risen, particularly in gymnastics.
We received the School Games Mark Gold Award in July 2016.
Other sporting achievements can be found on the extra-curricular section of our website.
