Sports Premium

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money. Maintained schools receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil in years 1 to 6 based upon the annual census.

Sporting legacy from the Olympics is promoted though the County Sports Partnerships and the Sainsbury’s School Games. Glebe Junior School participate fully in all aspects of the local Sports Partnership. Mr Watson, Y6 Assistant Headteacher, is the local representative for South Normanton and Pinxton schools. The Sainsbury’s School Games is a national programme that aims to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive sport.
