The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The government are nationally spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
We are using the funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at Crayke Church of England Primary School.

(All cluster sports events cover a range of activities including cross country, tag rugby and football.)

Our pupils continue to show an enthusiasm and enjoyment for sports and PE. Our sports coach works with each class and all the children have benefited from his expertise. They thoroughly enjoy his games sessions and their development is sustained. He has helped them to improve their knowledge of team games, their ability to work together as a team as well as their speed, agility and coordination. Mr Warriner also works with children who have been chosen to represent the school in competitions and this practice has proved invaluable.
