PE and Sports Premium
PE and Sport Premium for primary schools
All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation.
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
The ethos of Mottram school is to promote a healthy mind and body. We encourage our pupils to participate in healthy activities, both in and after school, and make good use of the outdoor provision, within the local community and to not only participate in sport, but to adopt a healthy eating regime, with a view to pupils becoming healthy adults and imparting their knowledge to their own children, in the future.
The current sport funding for Mottram is £17,180, (2021-2022) the breakdown is shown in the link below:
Participation in sport is encouraged at all times, and given as much precedence, within the curriculum, as other core subjects.
We believe that through the notion of a ‘healthy mind; healthy body’, children will be better equipped to achieve their potential.
