Sports Premium was introduced by the government during the 2013/14 academic year and has continued to date. The funding was introduced in order to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of provision offered in schools.
- To provide staff with targeted professional development, mentoring, training and resources.
- To develop active, positive playtimes and lunchtimes for our children including training for adults and Play Leaders to support this and new equipment.
- To embed physical activity in to the school day and encourage active lifestyles - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- To develop a love of sport and physical activity by providing a broad range of sports and activities.
- To encourage children to develop into healthy adults.
- To engage pupils in a leadership role that support sport and physical activity across the school.
- To engage the non-engaged through targeted opportunities, such as the Daily Mile and after school clubs.
- To provide opportunities for all children to participate in competitive sport.
The impact will be measured by:
- Increased participation in PE and Sport, including competitions
- Increased levels of fitness.
- Increased levels of physical activity at playtimes.
- Improved levels of staff knowledge and improved delivery of PE lessons.
