Sports Premium

Sports Premium

We at St. Elizabeth want healthy, happy and confident pupils. We want skills they learn, such as team work, resilience and respect for others, to be carried through to their adult lives. It is our aim to ensure that every pupil at St. Elizabeth enjoys PE and demonstrates a strong desire to be involved in all aspects of the sport curriculum.

Our sport provision aims to:

Encourage a love for an active lifestyle

Develop important life skills

Introduce children to a variety of physical activities

Involve every child and be child-led

Be challenging and enjoyable


St Elizabeth’s Catholic Primary School was allocated £9,765 through the Government’s Primary PE and Sport Premium for the 2016/17 academic year. We have used this money and aim to meet the aforementioned goals this year through a new partnership with Premier Sport.  In our school community Premier Sport supports teachers in their curriculum delivery and the children with an invaluable service during and after school.


Through participation with Premier Sport we have been able to:

  • Improve teachers’ professional development
  • Increase the standard of PE taught within the school
  • Provide children with After School Clubs

Through working with Premier sport we have identified ways in which we can proudly say we are accountable for how the Sports Premium funding is spent.
