Purpose of Funding
Schools can only spend the
Sports Premium at Hutton Cranswick CP School
Our school received funding in 2017/18 of £17,280. Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed,
all children benefit regardless of sporting ability;
most ablechildren are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments with other schools;
staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development;
some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints, eg swimming;
we make use of collaborative and partnership working.
With the above rationale in mind, and following the guidelines for how to spend this money, our initial plans for the use of the Sports Premium funding include:
investment in the professional development of staff at our school so they are best equipped to teach
high qualityPhysical Education and school sport for years to come. This will include providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE and sport;
increasing the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate - running
sportcompetitions, and increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games and inter schoolcompetitions with other local schools;
continued membership of the Driffield Sports Partnership;
hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules eg cricket;
working with the School Council to evaluate playground provision and fund playground markings;
encouraging our children to improve their leadership skills through sport – through sports leader initiative;
developing the outdoor and adventurous activities element of the PE curriculum, utilising the school's own grounds and facilities;
purchasing equipment to offer access to new sports and physical activities as relevant.
