PE and Sport Premium

,In June 2013 the Government announced the allocation of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20. The funding has been allocated to primary school to “improve the quality and breadth of physical education and sport provision, including increasing participation so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of”. The primary PE and sport premium will continue in 2020- 21 academic year.

The PE and School Sport Premium is part of a joint strategy supported and funded by the Department for Education (DfE), Department for Health (DfH) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

At St Cuthbert with St Matthias CofE Primary School, each pupil from YR to Y6 receives at least two hours of high quality physical education each week from our specialist PE teacher. Each lunch playtime we also provide structured sports activities for children.
