Dear Head Teacher,

Welcome to our first instalment of this new bi-monthly newsletter.

We have to begin by mentioning the fantastic news about the extended Sports Premium funding until 2020. The impact that this will have on pupils at the many schools with well planned provision, will positively affect their lives forever.

We know that a proportion of your premium funding has been allocated to the delivery of high quality Sport & PE from Premier Sport, so it's reassuring to hear how many ‘Outstanding’ ratings that schools we work within have achieved in the first school term of 2013/14.

The multi faceted approach to delivering curricular enrichment, up-skilling staff and offering a variety of physical activity to all pupils in and out of the school day, including for the many previously disengaged from sport, has certainly helped, but our support doesn't end on the playing field...

In January we launched our new FREE online schools portal. The portal can integrate with your own schools website and offers public information to parents and communities as well as providing a host of learning aids.

This fantastic online platform will also provide you with individual pupil performance & attainment records for each attended course which is a requirement of the PE and School Sport funding.

We hope you enjoy reading this newsletter, if you have any feedback we'd love to hear from you. Please drop us an email at [email protected]

From ‘special measures’ to ‘OUTSTANDING’ - head teacher praises Premier Sport

A school in Newcastle Upon Tyne which was placed into ‘special measures’ five years ago has turned a corner after being judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted inspectors.

Throckley Primary School received the ‘Outstanding’ grade across all four Ofsted categories including achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership and management.

"We are extremely pleased with the way in which Premier Sport has worked with us to allocate the new sport premium funding across the school in order to deliver outstanding curriculum and extra-curricular PE through a professional development model."

Premium funding extension secures our long-term partnership and continued support

Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that primary schools in England will continue to receive the £150m per year sports funding until 2020.

With school sport and legacy an ongoing debate following London 2012, this announcement is a welcomed one for schools, parents, sports practitioners and most importantly children who will ultimately benefit from a long term, sustainable strategy to sport and physical activity.

Mr Cameron says, school sport has an important role in building "confidence and a sense of achievement".

Our Chief Executive, David Batch comments:"This is another fantastic step forward to ensuring that every child benefits from high quality PE & Sport."
