Welcome to our new school website, we will be adding content regularly!

Sports Premium

Each year the school receives funding dedicated to developing sport in school. As a school we have had the freedom to choose the best way spend this money.

In previous years we have used the money to:

  • Train and develop our existing staff by employing specialist sports coaches to teach alongside our teaching staff.
  • Hire qualified sports coaches to develop niche sports.
  • Purchase sports equipment for PE lessons and train lunchtime staff in delivering sports at lunchtimes.
  • Develop competitive sports in school through afterschool clubs, specialist coaching in school and engaging with our local sports partnership.

For the academic year 2019-2020 the government increased the sports funding the school receive to approximately £19,660.
