We expect to receive £16,870.00 this academic year (2018-19). This money is to support sports development in schools and could be used to pay for the professional development of staff, professional coaching, sports equipment and competition entry.
We aim to provide a range of sporting opportunities for our pupils by organising extra-curricular clubs focussing on different sports and activities.
We plan to ensure that all our staff have professional development opportunities, all pupils to have sports coaching, all pupils to access a PE trip and our resources to be updated. In addition, a proportion of this fund will be used to pay for competitions locally by paying into the Sponne Sports Partnership.
Funding for 2017-2018
We received £16,720 for the year 2017-2018. We used the money to pay for specialist PE teaching and training for staff; a proportion of this fund was used to pay for competitions locally by paying into the Sponne Sports Partnership.
Funding also paid staff to attend a number of after-school competitions, enabling many of our children to represent their school in competitive sport.
Tennis coaching was funded for all of our KS2 pupils throughout the Summer term. A watersports trip to Northampton Watersports Centre allowed our children to try their hands at Windsurfing, Sailing and Bell-boating.
Funding was used to promote sport and exercise as part of our Healthy Living week in which children tried Yoga, Zumba and a range of other activities.
We were delighted to achieve the GOLD School Sports Award for the second time in July 2018.
