Sports Premium and Provision

At CCJ we put a real emphasis on sport and PE. Our PE Subject Leader, Mr Kennedy, works really hard to ensure that the PE curriculum, teaching input and provision of clubs and competitive games is consistently of a high standard and available for everyone. Through PE and sport, our vision is for children to develop the important values of self-belief, commitment, motivation, teamwork and resilience. We hope that this will lead to improved concentration, positive attitudes, overall health and raising of our standards in PE and other curriculum areas. At CCJ, we believe that every child deserves the right to feel confident and supported in their PE lessons and we work hard to ensure they are an inclusive, empowering learning environment where all achievements are actively celebrated.

We really welcomed the government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide every primary school with additional funding to improve the quality of PE and sport provision. We are committed to using this funding to develop high quality PE lessons and greater opportunities in sports and competitions for all children

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.

For example, we may use the funding to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation inter-house games
  • run sports activities with other schools

Sports Fund Spending for CCJ 2019/20

Despite us not having been able to take part in as many sporting events this summer as we would have liked due to school closure and COVID, we are delighted with some of the achievements we have made this year.  More children are more active, more are taking part in after school clubs and more are playing in school based sports teams. Our boys and girls excelled in football this year, we took part in our first ever swimming gala and we held very successful virtual sports events for those of you not able to come to school.
