What is the Sports Premium?
The government has funded every school as part of the Olympic legacy to enable high quality Sport, Physical Exercise and Well-Being activities to be provided.
This funding is known as the "Sports Premium".
The attached file explains how we have spent our allocated Sports Premium funding in the 2020-21 school year, and the impact this funding is having on our children.
What other PE provision is there in school?
In addition to the activities and lessons that are supported with sports premium funding, each class takes part in 2 PE lessons a week. Our PE curriculum covers gymnastics, dance, games, swimming and athletics.
Swimming tuition is provided at Brinscall Swimming Baths. In 2021-22, Year 6 and Year 4/5 will have swimming lessons.
Pupils in Year 4, 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in an action-packed residential weekend of outdoor and adventurous activities at Robinwood's Dobroyd Castle centre, Todmorden. Our residential weekend in July 2019 included canoeing, raft-building, caving, trapeze, giant swing, archery, and a range of different problem solving and team building activities. As the last 2 residentials were cancelled due to Covid, we are really looking forward to our July 2022 visit - we have waited a long time!
