Primary Sports Funding

The Government have provided funding to Primary Schools throughout the country to promote participation in PE and Sports to enhance physical well-being.

 At Larks Hill we have used this money over the past few years to provide professional development to teachers and have also partnered with a variety of external providers to enhance the range of curricular and extra curricular sporting activities that we can offer. We firmly believe that children benefit in participating in competitive events and use our Sports Premium funding to provide children with the opportunity to take part in local inter-school competitions.
Please see below for more information on how we plan to spend the Sports Premium funding for the current school year and how we spent it in the last academic year.

Our aim this academic year is to ensure that the requirements of the new national curriculum are fully met. From our actions we endeavour to develop the confidence and professional development of all teaching staff in their delivery of PE.

After focusing largely on quality professional development for teachers last year, this year we are using the funding to encourage children to lead healthy lives. We will be promoting the benefits of balanced diets and frequent exercise as well as providing more opportunities for children to participate in, and enjoy, sport.

At Larks Hill we used this funding to enhance our P E curriculum through partnership with ‘Accelerate’, a Sports and Performing Arts company based at Tong High School.  During the Academic Year 2013-14 they delivered a programme of dance, drama and games to all classes in school (2 sessions/week for 2 terms). As well as delivering the lessons, our school staff  also had quality professional development allowing them to  acquire new skills and develop sustainability for the future.  The partnership with Accelerate also included two lunchtime sessions and two after school clubs.
