PE & Sport Premium Strategy
Although we provide a range of sport and fitness opportunities for our pupils, we aim to become a more active and sporty school and have ambitious plans for next year. We want to introduce more competitive sports, increase the number of sport and fitness clubs and develop the curriculum further to use and develop pupils’ sporting talents and abilities. Our community and health data tells us that we need to stress to our pupils and families the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. We want to work more closely with community partners and parents to ensure the whole community is on board with our health and fitness goals.

What is PE and Sports funding?
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million each year for 2013-2014, 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school.
How much did we receive and what was it spent on?
The income we received for 14/15 was £11,745. This money was used exclusively for specialised additional coaching (provided by Premier Sports) to support all PE lessons for years 1 to 6 and provide coaching and play leadership for pupils at lunchtime.
What was the impact?
Pupil and staff feedback has confirmed that the use of the Sports Premium to provide coaching was effective in the following ways;
Children have enjoyed the specialist lessons and input from the qualified coaches
Staff have learnt a lot from the coaches, giving them confidence in the delivery of PE lessons.
The uptake of places in ‘sporty clubs’ has increased indicating that children are becoming more interested in getting involved in sporting activities.
Children are more physically active at lunchtimes
