Since 2013/14 the Government has provided funding of over £150 million per annum to support Primary School sport funding.
This funding, which the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport jointly provide, sees money going directly to Primary Schools to spend on improving the quality of Sport and PE for all their children.
We aim to achieve a self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and Sport in our school and to ensure that our spending of the PE and Sport Premium will have a long lasting impact.
Our plans, to the right, also show how else we intend to spend this premium using the DFE five indicators.
At Cherry Tree Academy, allocation of the Sports Premium is carried out through a wide range of initiatives, projects and strategies.
Provision is typically made through:
- All teachers and support staff having access to high quality CPD for increased skills, knowledge, understanding and confidence in a wide range of sports, throughout the academic year.
- Investment in providing an engaging and exciting curriculum.
- An extended curriculum of extra-curricular activities to develop pupil engagement, knowledge and understanding of sport whilst increasing competitive sport within the school.
- A developed wider curriculum which includes the active promotion of a healthy, active lifestyle, incorporating physical, mental and nutritional understanding.
