PE & Sport Funding

The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Sprowston Junior School will receive £18270 for the 2017-18 school year

Our plan for spending this grant includes:

  • training and professional development of teachers, including subject leader training
  • using outside agencies to provide more extra-curricular clubs, e.g. gymnastics, dance, tennis
  • subsidising after-school and holiday clubs
  • entering more competitions, e.g.  Norfolk School Games; Adapted Games; Cluster events
  • auditing and improving resources, including playground and lunchtime activities
  • swimming lessons, including year 6 children who need extra tuition
  • Introducing new sports and activities to the children
  • Emphasising the importance of leading healthy lifestyles

Across the school year we provide clubs for:

  • athletics, including indoor athletics
  • cricket
  • cross country running
  • dance
  • football
  • gymnastics
  • korfball
  • tennis
  • Zumba-style fitness
  • tag-rugby
  • tri-golf

... and a fantastic 275 places have been taken up across this range of clubs in the past year!
