Sports Premium

At St Laurence we place an emphasis on school sport and PE, we have recently been attending a range of competitions and festivals. At the Dodgeball competition, out of 12 teams, we won the fair team award, this is something that we are really proud of!



In 2018-19 the school is allocated £18,030 Sports Premium Funding.  Please read the information below which gives details about how we allocate the spending.

At St Laurence Primary School we are committed to developing the whole child physically through high quality Physical Education, which is supported by a competitive annual calendar of school sport. In addition to this, we also provide physical activities for children who want to dance and become active outside the means of school sport.


Here at St Laurence, we also develop our staff through the means of team teaching in order to improve the quality of the teaching and learning. We actively access competitive school sport and provide an opportunity for all young people to participate in clubs at least once per year.


We achieve this in the following ways:


  • By accessing team teaching support from Progressive Sports, two classes per week. 

  • We affiliate to the ESP (Erewash sports partnership) so we can access an annual calendar of competitions and regularly look to arrange fixtures with local schools and also run an inclusive sports day annually for KS1 and KS2.

  • Pupils who are entitled to pupil premium funding can access sports clubs free of charge where cost is a barrier to participation. 

  • Finally we develop physical activity through intervention groups to support movement and health such as and bike ability delivery.
