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 the quality of our provision during lunch and break times to ensure that all children are learning in an active, social and engaging way. This has been done by upskilling welfare staff through CPD opportunities and further developing our already comprehensive 'sports leadership' programme for pupils through school.
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 2020/2021 academic year, the impact it has had on improving the sports provisions at Newfold and the latest relevant Swimming Data for our current Year 6 pupils.
