Sports Premium Grant Expenditure 2016-2017
The total PE and Sport Premium allocation for 2016-17 of £8240 was used towards the funding of the building of the new purpose built Sports Hall.
The impact of the Sports Hall is linked to Indicator 1 –‘The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least of 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.’
The children now have a larger space during Breakfast Club and After School Club and can engage in activities such as ‘Just Dance’ and parachute games. The after school club leaders can plan and deliver a more exciting range of activities that will contribute to achieving indicator 1. This in turn impacts positively on behaviour and attitude. In addition, external providers, such as Bedford Blues Rugby Club and Premier Sports Archery, can now teach in an environment that contributes to higher quality outcomes for children.
