Sports Premium

 

Sports funding 2021 2022

As of April 2021, there was £9,018 remaining in the Sports premium funding pot. A further sum of approx. £8,000 is due over the academic year 2021/22

  • A new canopy was fitted in the EYFS to allow more outdoor learning to take place in all weathers. This was at a cost of £14,000
  • The TLR 3 payment will continue for the next academic year.
  • Kwik cricket will continue and all pupils across school will have access to this.
  • Yoga will also continue at the request of pupils again.

The importance placed on high quality physical education and play means children benefit in both the ,long and short term.

As the Pandemic takes its toll on Mental Health, the Yoga sessions help children to learn how to relax and gives strategies for them to support their own mental health.

The sustainable improvements to the outdoor provision will be the legacy of the Sports funding for many years to come. All children can now have access to a variety of outdoor equipment at all times when they are at play (which can also be used in PE lessons) and not only has this benefitted their physical and mental health, but it has improved behaviour across school, as all pupils have the opportunity to be engaged at all times in their free time.

 

Sports funding in 2020/21.

In September 2020, the school had a balance £19,400 in the Sports budget which consists of some balance unspent from last year, as well as this year's allocation.

We intend to spend it on the following:

  • Maintain Yoga classes in school (physical and mental health and well-being)
  • TLR 3 payment
  • Extra cricket sessions across school for all pupils.
  • New outdoor play equipment for school field (projected to be around £12k)

 As of September 2021, 67% of children in Year 6 can swim 25m or more. Swimming lessons should start again in the summer of 2022.

 

Sports funding for 2019 / 2020

School is in receipt of £8,160 of Sports Funding between September 2018 and September 2019.

This year, the funding has been / will be used as follows:

  • To part-fund a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) outside to ensure high quality outdoor P.E lessons and clubs can take place all year.
  • Maintain KWIK CRICKET for pupils for the 4th year on Fridays.
  • TLR for a member of staff to co-ordinate P.E activities and focus the school on receiving at least the Bronze Standard in the P.E mark award scheme.

All of the above will be sustainable for the next few years.

Currently, 80% of our Year 6 pupils can swim 25m or more. Swimming takes place for Year 5 and Year 6 during the Summer Term.
