PE and Sports Premium Funding

Academic Year 2020-21

We expect to receive £18,534 in PE and Sport Premium funding in the academic year 2020-21.

We will spend £10,750 to become part of the Morpeth and Ponteland School Sports Partnership, providing us with 5 hours of expert-led curriculum PE, 1 after-school club and 1 lunchtime club per week, as well as access to sports competitions, sports festivals and sports CPD which is open to all of our teaching staff (including trainee and associate staff) throughout the year.

We hope to spend further money (subject to current Covid-19 restrictions) on:

  • Swimming for Y3 and Y4 pupils (1 term each) (£2200)
  • Match Fit training for Y4 children (£750)

Provision of teaching assistant hours to support sport and PE. This includes the daily mile, basketball, team football and trim trail use at lunchtimes and small group activities such as parachute and team games during the school day.  Timetables have been restructured due to Covid-19 and therefore lunchtimes and active playtimes are now being staggered throughout the day. (£4850)

2020 – 2021 and Planning for the Future

Going forward, we feel that it is vital to continue our membership of the Morpeth and Ponteland School Sports partnership. The specialist teaching is outstanding and the opportunities for our children to access high quality taster sessions and workshops in a wide range of sporting activities is invaluable – something we simply could not offer on our own or without the benefit of the SSP. Accessing stimulating and supportive CPD will continue to upskill our staff members.
