PE and Sport Premium


Langwathby C of E School are proud of their commitment to Physical Education. We take great pride in our skills, enthusiasm and 'sporting' attitudes.  We invest carefully in CPD for staff, create opportunities for competition (both internal and external) and buy appropriate resources and equipment so PE and Sport can be enjoyed and accessed by all. 


What is the Sports Premium Funding?


Sports Premium funding is money allocated to school to improve the health, wellbeing and academic achievement of children through  sports and activities.  Sport is an important part of both our curriculum and our extra curricular provision.  We aim to deliver high quality Physical Education teaching and a wide and varied range of sports and activities for children after school.


How is Funding allocated to schools?


Allocations for the academic year 2021 to 2022 were calculated using the number of pupils in Yrs 1 - 6 (£10 per pupil + £16,000).

Our allocation for 21-22 totalled £17,110. 


How is the funding used at Langwathby C of E School ?


Funding is carefully considered and invested in the following areas:


  • To provide regular access to a wide variety of physical activities in order to develop mental and physical well-being (both within school hours and in addition to school hours). 
  • To have a range of PE kit and equipment which enables children of all ages to learn new skills/sports and to develop previously taught skills. 
  • Subscription to the Eden Valley Sports Partnership which provides us with year-round access to professional coaches (sport specific), invitations to a variety of competitive events and regular training opportunities for our teachers.  
  • To develop self-confidance, problem solving and team work skills via regular forest school sessions (weekly in EYFS and KS1). 
  • Investment in high quality CPD and equipment to ensure our teachers are skilled in the delivery of high-quality lessons within a thoughtfully sequenced, high-quality PE curriculum.
