We continue to use our Sports Premium funding wisely and in our latest Ofsted inspection, it was reported that:

“The physical education (PE) and sports premium is used well to ensure that all pupils have many opportunities to participate in physical activities. PE and games have a high priority in the school and pupils are taught to develop their skills, try new activities, and represent the school in competitions. There are many sports clubs that run after school. The school has recently received an award in recognition of its PE and games provision.” (May 2017)

Our aims of the funding are to:

  • Improve the quality of teaching and learning in PE in a sustainable way.
  • Increase the provision of PE and Sport in school.
  • Raise the profile of sport in our school.
  • Look into developing our outdoor area through a purpose built outdoor gym.
  • What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?



    What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke)?



    What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Please see our action plan to see the impact of our use of the funding, which amounted to £18,238 this year:

Increase the provision of PE and Sport in schoolWe have worked hard to provide clubs that are attractive and aimed at all groups of children. There are currently 19 different extra-curricular sports clubs that are timetabled during the year. These include dance, football, rugby, cross-country, athletics, multiskills, netball, cricket, golf and cheerleading. Our sports assistant is used each day to delivery clubs and to cover the administration side.

As a school we enter every competition available and many of our clubs are geared towards this. We provide friendly matches to give as many children as possible the opportunity to represent the school.
Last term, 352 children attended a sports club, which is 60% of our children. This is an increase from the previous year and one of the reasons for the school being awarded Gold in the School Games accreditation for three years running.

122 children represented the school in sporting competition and 150 children (all Year 6) received sports leadership training and worked with a younger year group in the lead up to Sports Day.
