Sports Premium


From the academic year 2013-2014, the Government has provided primary schools with a Sports Premium Fund. This initiative has been set up to promote increased participation and competition and to widen the sporting opportunities in primary schools. This academic year, the fund has been increased so as a result, Great Chesterford C of E Primary Academy has been allocated a sum of £18,040 for 2018-2019.

At Great Chesterford C. of E. Primary Academy, we are committed to ensuring that Sports Premium Funding is used to:

  • Increase the range of sporting activities on offer
  • Increase the number of children participating in competitive sporting events
  • Increase the number of sporting competitions entered
  • Ensure that an inclusive sports curriculum is delivered, including competition
  • Promote an active life style – to develop a love of sport and physical activity
  • Increase the range of resources available at playtimes to promote physical activity

As a school, we strive to provide all pupils with a range of sporting opportunities within an active and competitive PE curriculum. 

The school has been awarded The Sainsbury’s School Games Silver Mark 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.

The school has been awarded The Sainsbury's School Games Gold Mark 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019.

Regular reports are made to the governing body with annual consultations to discuss allocation of all funds.
