At Barford, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-
being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-
curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding so that each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year over this two year period. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools, but individual schools will have the freedom to choose how to do this.
Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-
house quality PE sessions.
At Barford, we believe that spending our funding on a variety of resources, coaching and training for staff to deliver high quality PE is an investment in the future and provides the pupils with a range of opportunities to further develop and improve their sporting skills
