What is Sports Premium?
Sport Premium Funding is granted annually and the completed report is for the previous academic year 2020-21, in which the school received £19,290 of funding.
For this academic year, 2021-2022, Crabtree Farm Primary School has been allocated £19,140 of funding. The report for this academic year will be published before the 31st July 2022.
The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Here at Crabtree Farm, we have the opportunity to spend the sport funding on improving our provision of PE and sport. Our aim is to provide an exciting and varied PE curriculum designed to give our children the knowledge, behaviours and skills to lead an active, healthy lifestyle now and in years to come.
How will we use the funding for this academic year 2021/2022:
At Crabtree Farm, we will use the funding to support our PE aims:
Increase the quality of PE teaching by employing highly trained sports coaches (Mr Kiggins and Mr Jackson) who develop the children’s skills, behaviours and knowledge as well as offering quality CPD to our staff
Increase the engagement and love of PE and sport by delivering fun and engaging lessons that ensure that our children make progress in lessons.
Increase participation in PE and sport through the offer of a variety of extracurricular sports clubs across school.
Increase competitive sports opportunities both within school and in the local area.
The governors and staff agree that the money should be used so that ALL children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
It is important to us here at Crabtree Farm that this funding opportunity is used effectively so that we have a lasting legacy that can continue into the future.
The school offers swimming lessons for all children in KS2. Children are given 2 swimming lessons per week over half a term. The Sports Premium funding allows us to offer ‘Top-Up’ lessons to those identified as needing additional support in swimming. In 2020/21, 83% of our children achieved their 25m badge. 11% of these did not have their 25m badge at the end of year 5 but achieved it after provision of intense year 6 top-up lessons.
