Physical education will form an important part of your child’s education and the school has focussed on the development of this areas over recent years.
Opportunities exist both within and outside the school day, through the curriculum and via out of hours provision.
Our playground has markings for football and netball and whilst the school does not have its own playing field, the local village playing field is used in the summer term and as a base for our annual 'Sports Day'.
The school has been in receipt of additional government funding specified as 'Sport Premium'. Each school in England has received £8000 plus £5 per child on roll. Schools are free to spend the Sport Premium as they see fit since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for all the pupils within their responsibility. This extra funding must be spent on Physical Education and school sport. The following information has been produced which sets out the amount of Sport Premium we have receive, how we intend to use it and its intended impact.
For more details about our use of the Sports Premium and how we will be spending it in 2016-17 click here to see our plan.
