Sports Premium

Sports funding is additional funding provided to schools by the government, in order to improve the provision of Physical Education and sport in school so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.

In 2014-2015 our sports funding was used to improve and develop the provision of Physical Education and dance across Key Stage 1 and 2 in the following ways:

 

Dance - Improving and supporting the dance curriculum.

We also continued to use the funding in order to offer gymnastics clubs to every year group in the school at different points in the year. In addition to this we were able to buy resources to enable us to hold a new style sports day on Winn Common at the end of the summer term. This was a popular event with both parents and children, enabling children to take part in a variety of events aimed at developing stamina, technique and problem solving skills among others.

(see documentation below for a provisional plan.)
