Use of the Funding
The allocated funding is being used to:
- Support the costs to employ a Sports Activity Leader.
- Fund other qualified sports coaches (Football & Dance) to work with both children and teachers in lessons, and also offer extra sports clubs at breakfast club, lunchtime and after school. This year we will be working closely with Dance City to provide these lesson and clubs.
- Extend our swimming provision to two sessions each week, delivered within Years 3 and 4 on a rotational basis, funding both pool hire and transport costs
- Offer more children the opportunity to represent the school at sporting events by entering a bigger range of competitions and festivals, including Newcastle School Games and National Governing Body competitions, and Healthy Active Lifestyle Events
- Increase the quality and quantity of PE equipment and resources in school to ensure the delivery of a high quality PE and sport programme
