“The Sports Premium is [allocated to schools] to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport in order to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.”
We use our additional funding to purchase support and services from Stanground Academy Sports Partnership. This is used to:
- develop teachers' skills, confidence and expertise across all Key Stages to ensure that we can deliver high quality PE and Sports provision to all of our pupils. Our intention is that improvements in teaching and organisation of PE at our school are embedded and sustained in the future
- provide access to sports festivals and participation in a range of inter-school competitions for all year groups
- support additional, extra-curricular clubs for all year groups such as multi-skills clubs and after school netball, football, cricket, dance and gymnastics clubs
- enable all Key Stage 2 classes to access blocks of weekly swimming sessions taught by qualified teachers.
Key Sports, a commercial coaching company, have also been commissioned to help improve and extend our offer of extra-curricular clubs at different times throughout the year.
