  • £1,320 for pupils in reception to year 6

Schools will receive £2,300 for any pupil: identified in the January 2018 school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:

  • a special guardianship order

Impact of Sports funding – 2014

The employment of a play leader to oversee and organise play activities at lunch time has resulted in more children taking part in active pastimes, such as completing trim trail circuits, riding bikes, playing playground games and skipping. There is also evidence that overall behavior has improved as more boys are participating in activities such as skipping and games and maintaining cooperative friendships. Overtime, it is planned to assess the impact of the trim trail on children’s hand-eye coordination, balance and confidence. A range of after school clubs are available to all children, including gymnastics and multiskills.

Proposed spending of Sports Funding 2015: (First amount received £3252 with more to follow)

  • Continue to upskill PE teachers by attending relevant courses, especially Dance based
  • Arrange cover for all PE teaching staff to visit other schools to compare and share ideas and therefore build up a range of plans, strategies and resources to enhance the teaching of dance, giving particular attention to those things that interest boys.
  • To offer a diverse range of after school activities, e.g. karate
  • Continue to employ the play leader to oversee lunchtime play activities.
