Sports Funding

The government provides funding to schools for the development of PE and sport, to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport. Following the Olympics school wanted to increase the participation for our pupils in sports that they may not get the opportunity to do. 

 

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. theChange4Life clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools
  • For our school this has seen the introduction many exciting sports which not only develop skills and ability in the sports but school will aim to develop excitement and opportunity for all children regardless of ability.   The local authority sports partnership, which uses specialist teachers to provide coaching for our school began in October 2013, and this provided specialist training for teachers to support the delivery of a high quality PE curriculum.

 

In 2017/8 SCHOOL WILL RECEIVE £16970

 

What impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.

It aims to give the opportunity for a growing number of pupils to participate in sports which would normally be beyond the realms of a primary curriculum, sustaining the Olympic Legacy by maintaining a sport for all culture within our community.

 

How the improvements will be sustainable in the future

Rock climbing , horse riding and sailing will continue to be an integral part of our curriculum.
