PE Sports Premium / Year 7 Literacy Numeracy Grant

2018-2019 Department for Education PE Sports Premium

The school has received Department for Education PE and Sports Grant Funding in the amount of £16,910 for the 2018-2019 academic year. Physical Development and Physical Education are fundamental parts of our curriculum offer. The school utilises the funding in line with the Department for Education Guidance, which is to

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

We have utilised the funding to contribute to four specific areas:

  • Extending sporting opportunities through festivals and competition including the London Youth games
  • Specialist coaching related to our complexity of need
  • Staff development and training

The use of the funding in line with DfE Guidelines, and impact of this funding, is monitored through the Pupil Progress and Provision Governing Body Committee.

The school utilises this funding in two ways:
