Sports Premium Funding

Sports Premium Funding

As a school we receive funding from Central Government based upon pupil numbers. This funding is called Sports Premium Funding and is intended to enable us as a school to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities that we offer all of our children.

We believe that it is vital to engage all children irrespective of their sporting abilities and therefore we have chosen to allocate our funding based upon some key principles:

 

  • increase participation in sport this year helping children to become healthier, fitter and happier through the reduction of stress!
  • increase the range of sporting opportunities, both inside and outside of school hours, we will discover talents and signpost children and parents to find a sport that suits their own personality, needs and abilities.
  • develop vital life skills about teamwork, how to handle pressure and overcome fear, and develop self-discipline.
  • develop commitment, perseverance and confidence required for competitive sports which can be transferred across to the academic areas of learning.
  • develop staff confidence and skills with physical education.

It is up to us as a school to make decisions as to how we spend this funding. A significant proportion of our funding is spent on providing our pupils with a full time specialist PE sports coach, which allows us as a school to draw on invaluable specialist support and coaching/training opportunities.
