Sports Funding & Swimming
The government is providing funding to provide schools with funding aimed at improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. Schools receive £8000 per school plus £5 per pupil. In 2017/2018 & 2018/2019 funding has been doubled.
We have used this funding to purchase a new PE Curriculum called Real PE, purchase a support agreement with Sponne School Towcester to enable our children to enter all cluster competitions and to pay for costs of transport and gym hall hire. We purchased a mini-bus in 2017 to transport our children to sporting events.
The impact of funding is showing in our PE delivery, with children benefiting from high quality teaching. The children from across our federation have had success in cluster sporting tournaments.
Children's fitness levels have improved with increased participation in PE. Enjoyment of sport is evident with more children wanting to join our Netball and Football clubs and teams.
We have also used the funding to develop our outdoor area to provide a stimulating environment to raise fitness levels in all our children.
Please see below our Federation report.
