PE and Sports Grant 2020-2021
How did the PE and Sports Grant make a difference to the PE and sport participation and attainment of pupils?
During the academic year 2020-2021 the school received £19,600.
The PE and Sports Grant has enabled us to work with a number of sports professionals during the year. With a curriculum which includes a wide range of activities, all supported by a progression of skills and differentiation, our children's fitness, level of skill and enjoyment continues to increase as they are taught and coached by a range of talented sports people, including our lead coach, Mrs Lucy Godfrey.
The underspend from 2019-2020 was spent on refreshing general PE resources and providing new games and activities to ensure children all in year groups enjoy active playtimes. Feedback from children about these resources has been very positive.
Unfortunately our swimming provision was limited due to COVID but all children in Years 3 - 6 still received at least 6 swimming lessons in our pool, which resulted in all but three of our pupils achieving the standard of swimming proficiency required by the National Curriculum. All sports coaches work alongside our experienced PE staff, ensuring that their knowledge and skills are continually improved as part of ongoing professional development.
Extra-curricular sport and competitive sport were mostly cancelled during 2020-2021 due to the pandemic. However, we continued to run football and cross country training as usual, ensuring that children remained strictly in 'bubbles' at all times.
Sport is an important part of the life of the school, and a large number of our children and families; we look forward to continuing to increase the impact of the funding and using it to maintain our high standards and broaden the sporting curriculum even further when COVID-19 is no longer a limiting factor.
