Our provisionally Sports Premium Funding for the academic year 17-18 is £17370. Please click the link above to see the impact report for 16-17 and how we provisionally intend to spend our budget in 17-18.
Last year our Sports Premium Funding was to the amount of £8600 for the academic year 2016-17.
The main aim for using this funding has been to increase the participation in school sport at St. James’. Outlined below is how the money has been spent in many different ways to improve the school’s provision of PE and sport.
The funding allocations continued to be spent in similar ways to previous years.
We continued to employ coaches from FUNDA, a small team of children’s physical education specialists based in Burnley.
The coaches provided support through:
We are excited to offer our children a whole new dance experience with the support of Sportscool who will be working in school this year to work alongside our teachers to improve dance outcomes and performance.
The provision of Swimming lessons continued as part of the sports curriculum in KS2.
We also endeavour to give our children opportunities to experience different sports and outdoor experiences. For example, we will be going to Robinwood this year to experience a variety of outdoor adventure activities. Also, we aim to provide a netball club - please encourage your children to attend all these exciting activities.
Our teachers have gained experience through the expert teaching with others which will have a wonderful impact on our provision. The children have experienced various sports and opportunities to explore their own skills in different ways. We look forward to our children continung their exploration by continuing to try new sports as a lifelong journey.
