Sports Premium Statement (Academic Year September 2014 – August 2015)

We have entered the second year of the Government’s Sports Premium Grant. It is intended to raise the profile of sports and healthy lifestyles for pupils creating a legacy in schools.  As you may be aware, Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best of way using of the money. The two main points to be covered are:

Underpinning all of this is the issue of sustainability. Anything put in place must have an impact that can be built upon. The measures put in place help us to raise the standard of PE by upskilling the staff, whilst the extra-curricular clubs that are run by outside agencies are generating funds which can be used to help continue the improvement. 

  • Improve the quality of PE taught
  • Increase the amount of involvement in Sport
