What is Sports Premium funding?
Sports Premium Funding
Sports Premium funding is being provided by the government to improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. In 2014, the government announced that schools would continue to receive the sports premium funding until 2020. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the government have decided to extend this for the academic year 2021/22. At Green Oaks, we will receive £17,670, which will go towards funding the provision of PE and sport for all of our children across the school, staff training and providing children with ‘catching-up’ experiences as a result of the recent pandemic. Our priorities are strongly linked with Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT).
How did we spend the Sport Premium funding 2020-21?
During 2020-21, we once again bought into our academy partnership of Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT) for £2,200. We also continued our partnership with Premier Sport, who have supported us with some P.E. sessions in school, provided after-school clubs and have also helped us prepare for school games.
As part of the Academy partnership, we received in school support; training and CPD opportunities for staff focusing on developing high-quality provision for the PE curriculum, which will support teachers in ensuring lessons are more active through Think and Move.
Although some events were cancelled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, some children were able to experience festivals and competitions. This year, we are entered into a number of exciting events! Some children in KS1 will have the opportunity to experience a multi-skills festival, while children in KS2 have festivals in athletics, gymnastics, new-age kurling, tr-golf, netball, goalball and cricket to look forward to!
