Sports Premium

What is Sports Premium Grant?

The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.

 How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

Allocations are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 and those age 5 in Reception, as recorded at the January Census as follows:

 Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per eligible pupil; and

 At Bradfield Dungworth, we received £16,900 for the academic year 2017-18.  It is anticipated that as a school we will receive a similar amount for 2018/19.

How have we spent our Sports Premium?

  • Links Membership.

This gives us access to local tournaments. We join in with local cluster events. We also get support from the local High School. During the Autumn term 2017 we had  a coach working with class teachers to deliver Taekwondo. We  had a tennis coach working throughout the school. We had a cricket coach working with KS2 in the summer term. In Autumn 2018 we have a badminton coach in school.

  •  Increased Opportunities for Competition

All year groups to have the opportunity to attend at least 1 competitive opportunity per year. We support individual children to attend high level competitions where there is a need and cover transport costs where appropriate e.g. mini buses.

  • Workshops

In the Spring term 2018 all the children experienced a mindfulness workshop to help them learn to relax. In the summer term all classes had  a Flamenco Dance workshop. In January 2019 all classes will participate in a skipping workshop.
