Sports Premium Spending 2020/21
We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of our children. We also recognise the importance of PE to the health and well-being of our pupils.
Our Sports Premium Funding will enable us to expand our PE provision to allow increased PE for every pupil and allow for greater participation in sport in the community. This will also include increasing the range of sports we provide to our pupils.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government has provided funding through the Sugar Tax to provide extended and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their pupils. This year the school will receive £16,100 for the year 2021/22. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision.
Purpose of the funding
This funding is allocated to schools in order to improve their sports and PE provision, in a way which best suits the schools and the needs of its pupils.

Increasing participation in sports competition with EHSA
Development of Beach Schools for all pupils

To engage in wider sports through specialist visitors to the academy
Objectives of spending:
