Sports Funding

The school has always invested heavily in developing pupils P.E and sports skills and this is evident in the number of local competitions and tournaments we have been successful in. We have done this due to the following:

  • An outstanding range of extra curricular sporting opportunities.
  • Full-time sports coach
  • 4 members of staff gaining CLA Coaching Award
  • Supply cover for CPD and staff release to train and take part in inter school activities
  • Funding swimming lessons for Y3/4
  • Medals, sports day/weeks
  • Sports provision for holidays
  • Extensive range after school activities
  • Outdoor and adventurous activities for Y5 including orienteering, caving , climbing
  • Y5 Residential at Hebden Hay – outdoor activities
  • Y6 residential in Scarborough
  • Specialist coaches delivering lessons- Karate, Long sword dancing, gymnastics

From September 2013 each school will receive extra sports funding through Sports Pupil Premium. In our school this will be approximately  £9000. We intend to use  this funding to support us with the above activities and also for:

Reception class swimming lessons
Staff training for Forest School
CPD and release time for staff to train in P.E and take pupils to competitions
Y5 Residential – outdoor activities (previously was subsidised by Treesponsibility)
More after school clubs
