PE & Sport Premium

Victoria Academy’s vision is for all pupils leaving school to be physcially literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy active lifestyle participation in physical activity and sport.

Our objective with the sports fund is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of P.E and sport against these 5 key indicators:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles.
  • The profile of P.E and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching P.E and Sport.
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.
