Sports Premium Allocation- Mr Mc Cluskey
The purpose of the funding allocated to school is to improve the provision of PE and to develop healthy lifestyles.
We have used part of our allocation ( £6,172) to employ a Sports Coach who supports the delivery of PE curriculum outside of and in addition to the regular PE lessons, this is achieved through planned activities carried out at lunch times,playtimes and through After School Clubs. Mr McClusky also supports PSHE and personal development Development of our children through specifically tailored sports inclusion programmes. The impact of sports is directly supporting the personal development and the academic progress of groups of children from Nursery to Year 6. In our school the Sports Coach promotes:
- Healthy Bodies
- Healthy Eating
- Inclusion through sport
- impact on academic achievement
- Self Esteem
- Team work
- Learning Behaviour
Awards are given out to children in a Fridays assembly by Mr McClusky for demonstrating success of the above
Other Projects supported via Sport Funding:
- Health For Schools £500
- Extra swimming lessons for all Key Stage 2 children £1,000
- Extended schools £500
- After School Clubs £500
The provision is sustainable due to the full time permanent employment of the sports coach.The strategy is reviewed annually and reported to the Governing Body termly.
