Our sports premium grant is used to great effect to provide a high quality of PE provision in school. The attached reports outline the key areas that we use the funding for and the impact that this is having.
Each child undertakes 2 hours of PE each week. There are lessons in gymnastics, dance, games, athletics and swimming. There is a well-equipped hall with a variety of agility and gymnastic apparatus. Children take part in competitive sport against other schools and we enter several tournaments each year.
The major emphasis of our physical education programme is to allow the children to acquire and use skills and strength in appropriate activities. We aim to show children that physical education is challenging in an individual and a collective situation and that they can find success at their own level.
We promote sport and personal fitness as an important part of staying healthy. There are opportunities for physical activity every day.

The impact of the funding will be reviewed annually in July. To ensure improvements are sustainable, the PE subject leader will receive additional training in the role of the use of this funding, and professional development for staff will be used to ensure expertise are developed so we are not reliant on specialist sports coaches.
