What is the Sports Premium?
The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is spread over 3 years from 2013 to 2016. Schools receive £8,000 plus £5 for each child on roll from Y1 to Y6.
During the past year the Sports Premium funding has allowed pupils to access local competitions and festivals and receive expert teaching through our partnership with a local sport provider called Active Fusion.
- Professional development for teachers and staff, including off site courses and team teaching and regular support from specialist teachers, to achieve high quality teaching and learning in lessons
- Competitions with schools from across the locality
We have also provided a wider range of opportunities for children to take part in extra curricular sport provided by trained coaches through partnership with three companies:
- Active Fusion
- MLB Coaching
This has led to an increase in the number of pupils taking part in additional sporting activities. These clubs run both after school and at lunch times.
Our site is challenging and repainting the playground to encourage specific game zones has encouraged more team games to be played at breaks. These are varied throughout the year. These games have been resourced with plenty of equipment to ensure that momentum is sustained.
