Sport Premium 2022-2023

Please also see the more detailed action plan at the bottom of this page.

The main aims for this year are:

  • Pupils will be encouraged to be active daily.
  • Children will find opportunities to enjoy being active and see the benefits for their physical and emotional health.
  • Children will be part of a challenging curriculum that is relevant to them and prepares them as life-long learners.
  • Children have the right to learn and achieve their potential

A big part of our funding this year is to be spent on the introduction of OPAL play for the whole school.  This is supported by the guidelines as there is a large amount of evidence that the programme is able to greatly increase the physical activity of all children and get more children, more active more of the time, and sustain those benefits over many years.

PE & Sport Premium 2021–22

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Department for Education took steps to relax the ring-fencing arrangements for the PE and sport premium in the 2019 to 2020 academic year to allow any unspent grant to be carried forward into the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

Any under-spends carried forward will need to be spent in full by 31 March 2021 and schools should factor this into spending plans for their 2020 to 2021 PE and sport premium allocation.

The allocations for this academic year are calculated using the number of pupils in year 1 to 6 as at the January 2020 Census and our allocation is £19,590 for this academic year which is credited to the school in two installments November 20 & May 21.

Achievements of 2021/2022 

  • A new PE scheme of work was purchased and used by staff.
  • A running track installed and daily running timetabled for all classes.
