Our school receives Sport Premium funding for the government to improve participation and attainment in sporting activity.
In this section you will find details about:
We have used our Sports Premium grant to improve the quality of the PE resources which the school has. This means the school has plenty of high-quality equipment which can be used for the children's benefit to develop their fitness and sporting ability.
In addition to this, we have increased our capacity to deliver sports teaching through staff development and training alongside sports coaches. We also have a qualified sports coach on the staff who is able to deliver PE tuition and support members of staff in their PE teaching.
We will still plan to use sports coaches to allow us to widen the amount of sporting opportunities to which our pupils have access and to further develop the expertise of the staff. We plan for this to continue for as long as the grant is in existence as well as to use a greater amount of the grant in the future to continue to allow for staff development.
We are further developing the role of pupil sports leaders and are training them to lead active playtime sessions using money from the grant. The student sports leaders also help with sporting events and can lead their own clubs at playtime. The role of sports leaders is being developed year on year using the grant and is building on the culture of sport and activity for all which we are proud to have at the school.
We are also ensuring sustainability by developing a culture of sport within the school where every child has an opportunity to take part in, and takes part in wider sporting activities and clubs beyond the PE lesson.
