Sports Premium Spending 

We offer an extensive and comprehensive package of sporting opportunities for our pupils. 

The government allocates PE and Sports Premium to be spent on the provision and improvement of sports teaching.

The school has chosen to work together with the other schools in the Sheffield School Partnership Link Program to create a cohesive approach to providing quality PE for all our pupils.

The document below details how we have used our Sports Premium by summer 2020 (on the Youth Sports Trust format 2019 version) and the impact it had on pupils.  We spend over our allocation by employing a full time sports leader and contributing to our LINKS cross school support partnership. There are actions outlined for 2020-21.

We work extensively with the award winning sports department at Sheffield Girls' High School. Mrs Susan Good  has worked with the school for ten years to develop staff knowledge of teaching sport and ensure pupils are provided with opportunities that help support their knowledge, confidence and competitive nature. Student mentors and staff from the school offer specialist coaching for our pupils  and involve us in their annual movement evening (Dance performance to an audience of 800), inter school netball competitions and coaching, cross-country running, badminton, rounders and tennis coaching. The element of competition, skill and positive mental attitude of our pupils has been enhanced by this approach and staff skills and confidence have led to an enhanced curriculum and colleague confidence.

Parents are supported financially to ensure their children can access Sunday league clubs and engage in extra curricular swimming, horse riding and gymnastics where parents may have financial challenges to meet these costs.
