Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Currently, our school recieves ring fenced Sports Funding from the government. Our school received £33,280 over the last two year period. We asked all our stakeholders – pupils, parents/carers, staff, governors and community representatives for their suggestions and took these into consideration when planning the programme.
As a school we identified four main areas for development:
- To promote healthier lifestyles with a greater emphasis on fitness and well-being
- To develop social skills so we can all communicate well and enjoy playing competitive games with our friends
- To raise our understanding and knowledge of how to keep ourselves and others safe
- To improve the quality of P.E./Sport provision within our school and at alternative venues

|The Sports funding has enabled us to provide more varied sporting and adventurous activities enabling our children to extend their skills and build confidence. We have utilized some of the funds to provide transport and additional staff to enable more pupils to access competitions and participate in new and exciting sports. Our children are more confident and adventurous.|
Whilst many clubs and events will continue this year we will also implement additional plans. There will also be specialist teaching for pupils and staff with joint lessons – one example being gymnastics. The range of clubs and sporting experiences will be widened further to give our pupils more breadth.
Ensuring top quality teaching and coaching remains a high priority for our school. We spent a considerable amount of time at the beginning researching a wide range of providers to secure people who supported the ethos of our school and were highly qualified at least up to Level 2. We will continue to ensure that high quality providers, who are enthusiastic and inclusive, work with our children.
