How is the Sports Premium Grant spent?
Our school is committed to delivering self-sustaining, high quality PE and Sporting opportunities for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
We employ specialist sports coaches who work alongside our Teachers and Teaching Assistants to further develop their skills and help them put training into practice.
During each half term festivals are held to enable competition between schools (e.g. Tag Rugby, Netball etc.) or celebration of achievement (e.g. dance, gymnastics). The festivals act as gateways to clubs so that interests and talents can be followed outside school and to higher levels.
The funding has been used to:
- Audit our current provision and identify areas of development.
- Provide additional training and purchase specialist coaching to develop staff expertise across a wide range of sports/activities.
- Enable our pupils to take part in a greater range of competitive sporting activities and encourage participation in after school sports clubs.
- Raise the profile of PE and sport throughout the school and develop pupils’ understanding of how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
