Sports Premium

Sports Premium Allocation

The purpose of the funding allocated to school is to improve the provision of PE and physical activity and to develop healthy lifestyles.

We have used the vast majority of our allocation  to employ a full time Sports Coach who supports the PE curriculum outside of the regular PE lessons, this is achieved through planned activities carried out at lunch times,playtimes and through After School Clubs. Mr Higham also supports Health For Schools, PSHE and personal development  of our children through specifically tailored  sports inclusion programmes. The impact of sports is directly supporting the personal development and the academic confidence of  groups of children from Nursery to Year 6.
