Since 2013-14 the Government has allocated funding for every school in England to be given money that must be directly used to enhance the Physical Education of all its pupils. This money is for not only developing sports provision but to encourage and develop pupils in leading healthier lifestyles.
At St Giles Church of England Primary School, we make every effort to ensure that all children are provided with the opportunity to take part in high quality sport, fitness and physical activity. It is our aim that children will be presented with as many opportunities in as many different fitness fields as possible. We aim to provide sporting opportunities for mixed gender groups without bias. We provide opportunities for competition with other schools in our cluster and enrichment opportunities with themed sports days to fit with events in the sporting calendar.
Below is a breakdown of how the money was spent last year and the impact that this has had on pupils.
For the current financial year (2017-2018) we will receive £16610 of 'Sports Premium' income.
Details of how we propose to spend this money and the impact to date are available on the sports action plan for 2017/18. This will be reviewed in July 2018 to evaluate and assess the sustainability for future years. School swimming data is also included in this action plan.
