Welcome: Home Parents Page Sports Premium
St. Thomas the Martyr Primary School believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, makes a unique and vital contribution to a pupil’s physical development and well-being.
The sports premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support and improve provision of physical education [P.E.] and sport in the school.
In 2016/17 the school received £8,666
We intend to use this funding in the following ways.
Examples of impact include:
More innovative teaching in swimming including extended lessons, improved planning and motivational certificates and badges for achievement resulted in 93% of last year’s Year 6 pupils reaching National Curriculum standard.
The introduction of gifted and talented swimmers after school club has given our children the opportunity to broaden their skills and abilities. We intend to continue with these strategies.
In addition, we are currently involved in the health and exercise project with Edge Hill University which is aiming to increase children’s enjoyment and participation in exercise through a variety of interventions in school.
The sports specialists are currently providing a weekly exercise programme across key stage 2 to develop children’s general fitness and knowledge around healthy living.

This school is exceptional. Every member of staff values, and generously cares, for each child. Each child is treated as an individual and their individual needs are supported and nurtured in an environment that inspires self confidence, determination and self esteem. Values of kindness, care and sympathy are strongly taught, both in theory and practice, this produces a happy, healthy school of which the children and staff are quite rightly proud.
This year Miss Birmingham has consistently gone above and beyond, words cannot describe the attention, care and sincere dedication she has put in to help our daughter grow in every single way. This has always been a hundred percent supported by Mrs. Hayes, Miss Robinson, Mr. Roscoe and Mrs. Butcher.
Thank you doesn't seem enough, you have worked magic and it means the world to us as a family. Our daughter absolutely loves school, and that is an absolute credit to you.
