Since 2013, the Government have invested a significant amount of money to help improve PE in schools and enhance children’s access to a larger variety of sport. This funding is ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on supporting pupils’ progress and participation in PE and school sport.
How does funding work?
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,800 in the 2020/2021 academic year.
Our rationale for the use of our Sports Premium is that it must be used for:
the benefit of all children, irrespective of sporting ability
participation in competitive events
the development of skills across all staff
the development of a healthy life for all children

How do we assess the impact of our actions?
The impact is measured as part of our self-evaluation process. We incorporate data, pupil voice and parent views when assessing the impact of our initiatives. Adjustments take all of these factors into consideration. A measure of success includes: improved participation, enhanced love of sport and healthier children.
