Sports Premium Funding 


Primary Sports Funding – 2018-2019

At La Salette we invest in P.E to continue to improve our provision and raise participation and achievement for all pupils in sport. We have received £17,758 Sports Premium Funding


Our funding priorities are to:

  • Increase participation in district, borough and county-wide competitions and tournaments through membership of the local sports collective;
  • Purchase additional PE resources to enable a wider and ‘new’ range of sports to be played.
  • Develop and host an annual summer sports tournament that encourages participation with our local cluster schools.
  • To continue to develop staff expertise in teaching P.E  through training and professional development.

How is it spent?

A large proportion of our funding is spent on membership of the Havering Sports Collective. Membership of the Collective allows us to maximise the impact that our funding can have. The benefits of this partnership are listed in the breakdown below together with our own uses of the funding.
