PE and Sport Funding Grant 2015-2017

In 2013-14 the government made available funds to support the development of physical activity and improve the health of Primary School pupils. In line with all schools, we now receive £8000 as a base grant and an additional £5 per pupil, each year. Following on from an internal audit and a questionnaire sent to parents and pupils in the first year, the PE and Sport Leader produces a detailed annual action plan of how we plan to spend the funds. A major part of the fund is allocated to membership of the Brookfield cluster ‘School Sports Partnership’ and through them we gain useful professional support and the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sporting activities and competitions. Our key objective is to ensure that the funds have a direct impact on provision and engagement in sport and therefore on children’s health and well-being.

Our PE and Sport Leader is Miss Jen Fairweather, who is also a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

In 2015-16 we received £9,780 in sport premium funds.

At the end of 2014-15 we were very proud to achieve:

  • The Silver Sainsbury’s School Games Award and
  • The Silver Youth Sport Trust Mark

In 2015-16, 90% of our pupils were involved in extra sporting activities and we are now working on gaining our Gold Award!
