What is Sport Premium?
Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government have allocated to schools since 2013. The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age the school has.
The sport premium grant is to be used to: Fund an increase and sustainable improvement to the provision of PE and School Sport for the benefit of primary aged pupils and to encourage the development of healthy active lifestyles and emotional well-being.
At Durham Trinity School & Sports College, we strive to promote healthy active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils to be physically healthy and engaged in competitive and non-competitive sporting opportunities and to offer them extended opportunities to develop as well as promoting their physical and mental health and well-being.
As a result, our aim is to:
- Develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sports activities that our school already offers
- Build capacity and capability within school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
