Grove House Primary School Sport Premium Overview


At Grove House Primary 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 believe that PE, physical activity and outdoor education supports and complements our school ethos.

We actively encourage high moral and spiritual values, self – motivation, independence and self – reliance so that all our learners can access learning and apply knowledge, empowering them to make a real difference not only to their own lives but to the life of the wider community.

Through PE and Sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of self – discipline, resilience, communication, teamwork and ambition as well as sporting skills, leading to improved concentration, attitude, healthier living and academic achievement.

For children to truly enjoy physical activity and school sport they should adopt the approach of both performer and coach, appreciate the performance of amateur and professional performers and develop ‘good sportsmanship’ qualities. They should also have the opportunity to try as many activities as possible to find their own preferences and proficiencies.

We welcome the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for the next two years to improve provision of 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, coaching and clubs for all our young children.

What does the Sport Premium mean for my school?

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).

As a school we are working closely with 5 Star Sports and Sports UK and have identified key areas through a self – review process as part of the Bradford East 1 Local Achievement Partnership to ensure that we can meet the high expectations in PE and sport for our children.

Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day’ (DfE June 2013)

The total number of pupils between the ages of 5-11 years (January Census)          362
