Sports Premium Funding

Sport Premium Funding 

Following the success of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games, the Government has made a commitment to invest over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16. Schools and academies determine how best to spend their allocation.

We have decided to spend our allocation in the following way:

2017/2018

Having an understanding of the importance of healthy living is something we pride ourselves on at Newton Hill, therefore we have carefully looked at ways our sports funding can be spent to ensure all children have the opportunity to be active, to eat healthily and to compete at a high level in the school sporting arena.

How we will spend our funding in 2017/2018 and our proposed outcomes:

Following the recent announcement of Sports Premium for schools being doubled as of 2017-18, we are pleased to announce a new partnership with Xcite Sports and Fitness who will be in school on a weekly basis. Xcite’s highly knowledgeable coaches, James O’Neill and Matt Goddard, will provide the children with a variety of different sporting experiences, high level coaching, a range of inter and intra sporting competitions for all ages, staff CPD opportunities and whole-school curriculum lessons focusing on the importance of having a healthy and active lifestyle. All children will be given the opportunity to ‘learn to lead’ as a part of their PE lessons, and they will also be responsible for helping plan and carry out lessons across school as part of their development as sports leaders.

Furthermore, our funding will be spent to ensure a range of different extra-curricular clubs are available for all children. This, along with our new links with Xcite Sports and Fitness, Wakefield Wildcats, the FA and Leeds United, will allow the children to advance their experiences and hopefully sporting stars of the future will be created. Having an understanding of the importance of healthy living is something we pride ourselves on at Newton Hill, therefore we have carefully looked at ways our funding can be spent to ensure all children have the opportunity to be active, to eat healthily and to compete at a high level in the school sporting arena.

As well as this, our Sports Premium funding will be used to ensure the school continues to have the highest quality and most effective sporting equipment for all ages. Children have been asked what resources they want; the funding will be used to ensure the school has a plethora of kit that can be used during lunchtimes, after school clubs and in high quality PE lessons. We hope to see our children maintain their high standards and achieve successful results again in the numerous upcoming sporting tournaments. Our enthusiastic teaching staff will also be a part of these clubs with the purpose of developing their own teaching and knowledge in the areas.
