Sports Premium Funding 


Primary Sports Funding – 2022-2023

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 £17,780 Sports Premium Funding.

 A large proportion of our funding is spent on membership of the Havering Sports Collective and extra-curricular provision. 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. La Salette is also putting a significant investment in new equipment to promote greater physical activity across the school.

Our funding priorities in 2022 - 2023 are to:

  • Increase participation in district, borough and county-wide competitions and tournaments through membership of the local sports collective;
  • Purchase additional P.E resources to enable a wider and ‘new’ range of sports to be played.
  • Increase the range of extra-curricular sports clubs offered to families to allow all children access to after-school sports.
  • Develop and host an annual summer football tournament that encourages participation with our local cluster of schools.
  • To continue to develop staff expertise in teaching P.E  through training and professional development.
  • Increase the number of Pupil Premium children accessing additional sporting clubs.

  Listed below is a selection of the initiatives planned for this year - full details are available in the SPORTS FUND: Action Plan and Budget Tracking Document for 2022-23  (document is being updated)
