Sports Premium

Sports Premium Report 2019/20

PE and school sport play is highly regarded at Elaine. We encourage participation and an appreciation of sport. We believe that PE and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values and character skills such as respect, relationships and collaboration for themselves and others.

The sports premium awarded to Elaine for the year 2019/20 is £17,425. The funding is spent on a membership to the Howard School Sports Partnership (, a specialist coach providing after school and lunchtime clubs for children, CPD for staff to ensure confidence in teaching PE, sports kit for the children of Elaine Primary and the introduction of the Rising Stars Champions scheme.
