Our Sport Premium funding for 2017/18 is £19,780. This money is ringfenced and is just to be used to promote sports for all children.
We have carefully considered how to best use this money so that sports excellence is sustained after the two year Sport Premium money finishes.
This year we are employing sports coaches from Sportwiz Coaching Ltd (Premier Sport). They are providing quality, fun coaching for all children (including Reception). Also most importantly the teaching staff are improving their skills and therefore their teaching.
We are also using the funding to support a group of children to build their confidence. This is called Change for Life.
Health and wellbeing is high on the Education agenda and we will be taking part in the Body Care Roadshow.
It is very expensive transporting children to events, especially as there is a major multi sport event for each year group, so some money will be used to pay for transport.
We are also paying for cover for teachers attending sports training, to improve their teaching.
Some new equipment and kit will be purchased as needed, for us to undertake some new sports initiatives.
This is just a taste of how we intend to use the Sports Premium to benefit the greatest number and range of children.
