PE curriculum

'The school’s use of the primary schools’ sports funding has been used well to develop expertise among staff, for example, in dance, gymnastics, football and other sports, and thus to broaden the physical education curriculum. Pupils enjoy many opportunities to compete with other schools. The school promotes healthy lifestyles very effectively and participation in sports clubs is high.' (Ofsted Sept 2017).

Sport Premium Overview

The Vision

What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?

Craven Primary Academy

‘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).

At Craven Primary Academy we believe PE & 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.

Through PE & Sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.

We are delighted to inform you that following hte hard work of the children and staff last year Craven Primary Academy acheived GOLD Games Mark Award for our commitement, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport!

This wouldn't be achievable without the hard work and dedication from our children, Miss Cooper and all of the staff who run afterschool clubs and take the children to many sporting events!

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (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 and clubs for all our young people.


‘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)
