Sports Premium Funding
Sports Premium Funding at Castle Batch Primary School Academy
The purpose of sports funding is to 'fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and Sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2018 - 19 academic year, to encourage to development of healthy, active lifestyles'.
Key indicators of the effective use of sports funding are:
Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school;
Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement;
Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport;
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.
Here at Castle Batch, we endeavour to use our Sports Funding to effectively address all of these key indicators, give our children an excellent grounding in sporting activity for life, and ensure that sports, physical activity and physical and mental health remain high on our list of priorities.
Our PE and Sports Leaders are Mrs Lucy Rees and Mrs Ali Sweet, and they would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
