Looking back....

For 2019/2020 our Sports Premium Funding was  targeted at the following:

Developing Young Sports Leaders.

Increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

To see the engagement of all pupils in regular physical exercise kick starting healthy lifestyles, including daily mile and enhanced outdoor provision.

Forest School for active lifestyles.

Intervention for less active pupils, with an early morning Active Club.

Improving the quality of teaching including SOLO Taxonomy professional development for depth in learning.

ELSA Resources and additional time to target mental health and wellbeing.

Increasing the range of PE equipment available to pupils, including more challenging gymnastics provision for UKS2.

Supporting additional swimming to ensure all pupils can swim at least 25m by the time they leave primary school.

In 2020-2021, this work was continued as far as possible, with additional activity for targeted pupils, reintroduction of intra-school competitions, and a focus on improving the fitness of pupils who had been too inactive during the pandemic months. Resources were also used to develop the outdoor provision for greater activity in school, and to provide support and resources for children to be active outside school.
