PE and Sport Funding
Our additional Sports Funding is used alongside our main funding both to bring in sports expertise into the curriculum and beyond, and to support our training and continued upkeep of our swimming, in which our children learn to swim by using the pool daily in the Summer Months.
The total amount allocated to the school at the start of the financial year 2016 to 2017 was £3 535.

The impact of the expenditure.
Children learnt six different sports in the course of the year and were able to extend their skills through after school clubs and tournaments with local schools. In addition, children were involved children in after gymnastics. By the end of the Summer term 2015, over 90% of children within key stages 1 and 2 were swimming lengths successfully.
Most of the funding is now provided by the school's main budget, and future sports spending has been written into the school's budget to ensure sustainabilty of our programmes.
