The National Sports Premium funding was introduced during the academic year 2013/2014 following the huge success of the London 2012 Olympic games. It is designed to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Activity and sporting opportunities each school provides their pupils.
At Newfold we have decided to spend a large percentage of the money employing a full-time Physical Education specialist. This has provided outstanding P.E. delivery to all phases of the school; further enhanced our extra-curriculum provision; provided staff with excellent CPD opportunities and contributed to all pupils health and well-being. We have also focused on developing our school grounds in order to provide safe and engaging areas where children can explore and be active, such as the extension of our outdoor gym.
The Sports Premium provision is in addition to the already outstanding PE and sporting opportunities we provide for our school community.
Please see our Action Plan containing a break down of our spending for the 2017/2018 academic year and the impact it will have on improving the sports provisions at Newfold.
