Sports Premium Funding
The Sports Premium is additional funding given to schools to improve physical education. It is for Primary aged children. The ethos in the school is to provide lots of opportunities for physical activities. Many classes have daily power walks in the park, and our fabulous outside equipment is available to all pupils at all break times. It is a rare day that we don’t go outside, and pupils have appropriate clothing to enable full use of the outside environment.
This is how we have chosen to use this additional money.
2020 - 21
2019 - 20
The funding for 2018-19 is £17,626
Funding will go towards the provision of additional shading/shelter for East site to ensure that the outdoor space can be used in all weathers.
Additionally, extra bikes and scooters will be purchased. In particular, the “penny-farthing” style bikes have been very popular and more of these will be purchased.
Impact of funding
The pupils will be able to access outdoor space to play despite extremes of weather. The penny-farthing bicycles enable pupils to get their balance and confidence prior to riding a normal cycle.
