The government has announced that the Primary Physical Education and Sports funding will be continued for the academic year 2020- 2021. For our school, this means we will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. In our last OFSTED inspection it was said that:
“The primary school sport funding has been put to excellent use. The playground is full of fixed and mobile equipment for the pupils to use and a specialist sports teacher comes into school to teach pupils and train staff. This expert help and additional resources have improved the range of sports on offer, increased pupils’ participation in local tournaments and helped to develop an impressive range of active options for the pupils during playtimes and at after-school clubs. In addition, athletes and Olympians have visited the school to talk to pupils about their experiences and achievements. All of this teaches pupils to respect effort and commitment and to aspire to excellence. “
After maximising all available space around school to further promote healthy lifestyles and active pupils and following Covid 19, the school has placed a high important on pupil mental health as part of out 'Healthy Body, Healthy Mind' focus. Following an analysis of the objectives and achievements from last year, the following areas of development have been targeted in this academic year.
The reports below give information about how the previous sports funding has been used and how we plan to use the 2020/2021 funding.
