Sports Premium 2016-17

Total Funding Allocated: £8430

Our aim is to provide a wide range of sporting opportunities for the children in our school, both during the school day and outside of the school day, to allow as many children as possible to find a physical activity they can enjoy.

How are we spend our funding?

At lunchtime, he will organise activities for the children to take part in, to provide further opportunities for them to be active. After school he will assist any qualified coaches or teachers with clubs as well as leading others later in the year.

School Sports Week

Every Year we plan a range of activities including sports day for Schools Sports Week to raise the profile of Sport in our young children. Last year we were visited by Potential Olympic Athletes and had a range of other activities.


This year we aim to provide children with at least 15 minutes worth of daily exercise outside of their allocated PE time. We also are striving to provide at least out of school Physical Activity opportunity for all children from Year 1 and above. We hope this will allow 100% of the children to find a physical activity they can continue with after leaving our school. This year we hope to provide the children with popular sports such as Netball, Football, Rugby and other such sports, as well as opportunities such as Archery, Fencing and Street Dance.
