Our Vision for PE and Sport

At Comber Grove we aim to establish a sporting culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport.

We encourage our pupils to develop independently and in teams as sports people which is celebrated through our Core Values of Resilience and Teamwork.

As a school we enter school sport competitions to allow children to be competitive and are constantly developing our PE programme.

Primary School’s Sports Funding

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014 – 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary schools.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for the next two academic years.

The money has been allocated directly to primary schools and we can choose how we use the funding, for example:

  1. Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  2. Support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  3. Provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  4. Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  5. Run sports activities with other schools
