The government wants all schools to promote sport and increase participation in physical activity. Our school received £9535 last year from central funding to support these aims.
We have used the money to buy in advice and support from the Milton Keynes School Sport Partnership; this has provided expertise for staff training as well as access to inter-school competitions.
Health & Fitness are high priorities at this school and from September 2015 we will introduce a 'Jubilee Health & Fitness Award' for all children to work towards. Using Sports Premium money we have ordered log books for the children to keep. To gain the award a child has to demonstrate improved fitness (with testing!); gain a new sporting skill (signed by a qualified coach) and prepare a presentation on healthy life-style choices.
Part of the funding has been used to buy equipment and part-fund a new Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) on the school field.
From September 2016 the school has its own specialist PE teacher who takes lessons across KS2, runs clubs and trains are school teams for competitions.
