What is the ‘Sport Premium’?
Since April 2013, the Government has provided additional funding for Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer by:
- Developing or adding to the PE and sport activities already offered
- Building capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
We are proud of the current PE curriculum provision at our school and of the wealth of extra-curricular opportunities that we provide for our pupils. Our teachers work alongside PE specialists to plan and team teach PE lessons and we employ a specialist sports coach who works one day a week in school to enrich our sports provision. Every child takes a course of 6 swimming lessons at Stanground Academy. After-school sporting clubs include football, netball, street dance, country dancing and gymnastics.
Our football and netball teams compete regularly with other schools and our half termly inter-house sporting competitions we encourage all children to participate in a wide range of competitive sporting activities including ultimate frisbee, dodgeball, benchball, and tri golf .
