Sports Funding

Sports Funding 2019-20

We received £17,000 for the academic year based on £16,000 plus £10 per child in Years 1 - 6.

Out of this allocation we used:-

  • £ to install a Golden Mile all weather track on the school field.
  • £ (%of the total allocation) for the use of a Sports Specialist from Perins to come in for a day and work with all classes from Year 1 to 6 each week - further enhancing subject knowledge for staff, especially those new to the school.
  • Transport to all the sports events we have taken part in.
  • £160 to pay for a block of six badminton lessons for our Year 4/5 class - introducing them to a new sport. This led to the offer of an after school club in the spring term, but unfortunately the take up for it made it not viable to run.

Sports Funding

We believe a high quality PE curriculum should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum.  Through PE and physical activity, children demonstrate and live out our core values of love, hope and justice.

Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to participate in a wide range of physical activities by providing  a broad and balanced curriculum.

Our PE curriculum is inclusive and ensures that all children have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead healthy, active lives.

Achievements for the year (up to school closure in March 2020 due to Covid-19)

Continued participation in competitive sports events, both within school and the 7AS.  Over the year we have used the funding to pay for a sport specialist to deliver weekly PE lessons to classes from Years 1 - 6.  As we had two NQT's new to the school, they also benefited from CPD by observing and joining in with PE teaching.  Our specialist also planned and implemented inter-house events throughout the year, so that all year groups have taken part in two different inter-house Level 1 competitions over the two terms at school.
