Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this. We have allocated the funds in a way which is aimed to develop staff skills and children’s passion, enthusiasm and capability for physical activity encouraging the development of more healthy, active lifestyles. In this way, we are making a sustainable impact which will last beyond this academic year and that we can build upon in the future. For example, the Active Play resource will be available to use at every lunch, break and after school. By training staff in playground leaders or MSAs to lead lunch time active play we are ensuring the impact is sustainable.

In 2019, as has been the case in all other years, all of our pupils from Reception to Year 6 took part in swimming lessons during the summer term.
Our data for 2016/17 was 75% of our Y6 pupils (15/20) met the National Curriculum requirement as a minimum.
