Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
At Our Lady of Hartley, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the wellbeing and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary School Sport Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

The government has committed to providing funding of £150 million per annum until 2020 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years - here at Our Lady of Hartley that will mean around £9000 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. Sports funding became effective in 2013.
Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport and are allowed to allocate funds to suit their children and school.
Possible uses of the funding include:
Regular specialist support for teachers during PE lessons.
CPD opportunities for staff in national and local programmes of sport.
Lesson observations and coaching support.
Organised competitions at local level.
Support with intra and inter school competitions co-ordination and participation.
