At Fowey Primary School we believe PE and sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
Our allocation of funding
- For 2016-2017 our funding is £8745
What does the Sport Premium mean for schools?
‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).
At Fowey Primary School we have split up the funding by three key areas for consideration:
- Increased participation
- Healthy active lifestyles
- Staff development and raising standards

How the 2016/17 improvements will be sustainable in the future
Membership to Mid Cornwall Sports Network
Children are exposed to a wide range of sporting activities through cluster events at FRA and Mid Cornwall area events. By providing this range of competition, children will be more likely to lead healthy and active lifestyles in the future. They will also enjoy the challenge of competition against their peers from other schools. This year our Year 5/6 football and netball teams both won their area leagues. The children who took part in these games gained confidence, leadership and teamwork skills, whilst displaying sportsmanship and empathy for their opponents. Teachers also have opportunities to complete sporting CPD courses for their benefit and for the benefit of children for years to come.
GoActive Teacher CPD
All KS1 and KS2 Children have been taught new games and skills relevant to their age and experience. In particular, KS1 children and staff have benefitted from learning new disability and Paralympic sports, including goal ball and seated volleyball. This inclusive sports training not only supported CPD for all staff, but also gave those children with disabilities a chance to compete on a completely level starting point, without the task having to be differentiated. GoActive also provided specialist equipment which increased the interest in the PE lessons, particularly of those children who may not enjoy traditional activities (Urban Polo and Rocketball).
