THE USE OF AND PROPOSED IMPACT/EFFECT OF PRIMARY PE AND SPORTS PREMIUM
AT SHERWOOD PARK SCHOOL 2020-21
This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is received directly by our school and will be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all our pupils. This allocation of funding is to provide new, substantial school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in schools. The Government has agreed to this funding due to concerns regarding childhood obesity and lack of exercise.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum. For the academic year Sept 2020 – August 2021 Sherwood Park School will receive an amount of £16,000, plus £10 per pupil. This funding is ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on the provision of PE and Sport in schools for primary aged pupils.
How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding:
As well as promoting good health, the government states that school sport has an important role in building “confidence and a sense of achievement” both of which we see as important for our pupils.
We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all. We intend to use this Sports Premium to continue and boost our already extensive Sports provision, through further enhancement of our PE curriculum and our Extended Schools provision. This will help to ensure that our pupils are given every opportunity to be healthy, confident and with support, take part in a range of sports thus raising participation and achievement for all.
It will enable the school to provide funding for:

Year 6 Swimming competency statement
Pupils at Sherwood Park School continue to work towards developing their confidence, and proficiency at swimming at least 25 meters in the pool. So far none of our Year 6 pupils can swim 25 meters, use a range of strokes or perform safe and self-rescue in different water based situations. This is a result of their developmental and physical delay.
