At Tithe Barn Primary School we pride ourselves on having a strong tradition of taking an active part in sports competitions. We run a wide range of after-school activities, offering opportunities for children to participate in a variety of sports throughout the year. This is in addition to a full programme of dance, gymnastics, games and swimming through class PE/Games lessons.
What is the ‘Sport Premium’ and how will it help us achieve our goals?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for the Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. When asked about the ‘Sport Premium’ at its launch, Lord Coe reflected: ‘When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London’s vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport. By focusing on primary schools, we have the opportunity to use sport and physical activity to shape the daily lives of young people. I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people.’ (Lord Coe)
Tithe Barn Primary School receives a sports premium funding of £ 9055 per year.
Funding for 2016 to 2017 is calculated as follows:
This is ring-fenced solely for physical education. It has enabled us to continue to improve the breadth and quality of sport we offer.

To replace the football team kit (via sponsorship) to reflect the esteem we hold sport in our school.
Tithe Barn Primary School would like to involve as many children in physical activities as possible. We will strive to ensure that all children receive high-quality PE lessons and have the opportunity to attend sports clubs before and after school – possibly lunchtime too.
Through sport we feel the children have the opportunity to increase their self-esteem, team work and leadership skills.
We believe being involved with sporting activities encourages a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle.
