What is Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding for primary school sports. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
What is the purpose of Sports Premium?
All schools must use the sports premium to fund additional and sustainable improvements for provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Bantock Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to develop healthy, active lifestyles and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
What is our approach to spending the Sports Premium?
At Bantock Primary we believe that all children have an equal opportunity to participate in a broad and balanced curriculum according to their needs, abilities and interests. We aim to remove all barriers to achievement and make every child SHINE.
Any objectives that school find to be successful, co-coordinators then implement into the school's policies and procedure for the following years to sustain these improvements.
