What is the ‘Sport Premium’?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’. Since then, the Sports Premium has doubled and the Government has pledged to continue this funding until 2020.This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.
The aim is to promote sports and healthier lifestyles for all, both in and out of school, through enhanced provision, improving staff competence in their ability to cater for a wider variety of sports.

Our aim has been deployed to achieve long term, self sustaining improvement. To that end, we have invested in the professional development of staff as well as providing qualified specialist coaches to work alongside teachers and to offer additional extra-curricular opportunities. We have given more children more opportunities to take part in competitive events.
The school have recently received the ‘Bronze School Games Award.’ This award, recognised by Ofsted, reflects the importance we place on PE and Sport at school, as well as the hard work and efforts of the staff and of course the pupils. We plan to continue to enhance the curriculum by providing many more exciting PE and Sport activities in the next academic year.
A special thank you to Mr Monro (Sport Coach) & Miss Solomon, Sport and PE Co-ordinator, for their hard work in securing the award.
