 School Sports Premium Grant

 Provision for 2017/18 academic year

To enable the sports premium grant to have the most impact on sport across the school, we have bought in to the Shepway Sports Trust Competition Package, which gives us access to the Shepway School Games Partnership. This enables the school to take part in more competitions and activities against schools from across Shepway. In addition to the competitions, each class will receive 5 sports activities throughout the year, delivered by specialists. Our staff will receive 12 hours team teaching with a specialist to develop CPD as well as extra PE support in staff meetings from the PE leader throughout the year. The package also includes 2 lunch time sports sessions (delivered by specialists) to promote active lifestyles, playmakers training for KS2 pupils, 3 six week blocks of sport clubs for 90 KS2 children to take part in.

In addition to this, we will be allocating a percentage of the sports grant to maintaining and improving our PE resources & ensuring that there are sufficient planning resources to deliver effective PE lessons.

Transport to local competitions and events will continue to take a percentage of the sports premium grant, which will enable more children to access extra-curricular sports across the district.

We will continue to access the Golden Mile daily run to promote healthy lifestyles to all children from Y1-Y6 and use the online database to record the number of miles run by each child throughout the school year.

Participation in sport will be recorded and assessed each term throughout the year (3 times per year) using the school sports tracking system.

The sports premium grant allocation for the 2017-18 academic year is £17,760.

The funding should have an impact on the following:
