Shepley First School

Sport Premium

The Government provides Sports Premium funding to help create real and sustainable benefits to PE provision in schools. This may be to help find sports stars of the future, but equally it may be to help all children enjoy sport in some way or to provide an education about how to live a healthy life.

In our school we are using this funding by working with the Shelley Pyramid Sports Partnership to:

  • To continue to the amount of competition sport in which our children participate.
  • Make links to other community sports providers.
  • Develop additional clubs and activities for children, outside the curriculum.
  • Encourage our children to improve their leadership skills through sport.
  • Give extra support in PE to our most talented children and include those with special needs in sport.
  • Lastly, we are bringing PE and sports specialist teachers and coaches into work alongside class teachers in lessons.

In this way, our children will gain new skills and experiences and teachers will learn new techniques and knowledge to aid them in teaching sport and PE.
The long term aim is higher quality lessons and improved learning for all children.
