What is the PE and Sports Premium?
The government provides additional funding for maintained schools and academies to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport.
At Rolleston Primary School, we greatly value the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children.
We believe that a well planned PE curriculum, strong teaching and extra-curricular opportunities support our children in being healthy and promotes the enjoyment of physical excersise as well as having a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
The school has now greatly strengthened its provision in specialist PE staff through employing an advanced skilled PE teacher and a full time sports coach to meet the priority needs identified through previous Sports Premium Impact reports.
The school has also improved its internet and wifi infrastructure to allow ICT to be used in the sports hall and across all the outside playing fields
